Do you color or colour?
If you are American, you color your coloring pages. But in Canada and
Britain, you colour your colouring pages. And because we love our Canadian and British friends,
FreeKidsColoring.com is now also available as FreeKidsColouring.com!
Okay, it’s little like cheating, because when you type in “www.freekidscolouring.com” you are simply automatically directed to our American-spelled site, but I’m still thinking of you … and thought you’d like to know!
Happy Holidays to everyone!
See ya on the Net,

#3. Robert Frost
by Barbara J. Feldman
Robert Frost Printable (** for premium members only)
Robert Lee Frost ( 1874 – 1963) is one of America’s most famous poets and a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner His poetry is both traditional and experimental and often memorized by school children. He once stated that his goal was to write “a few poems it will be hard to get rid of.” Explore these sites and his work, and let me know if you think Frost succeeded.

American Poems: Robert Frost
American Poems’s Robert Frost page starts with a biography linked to related poets (including Carl Sandburg and Ezra Pound) and ends with a listing of 108 poems, sorted by volume. What’s unique here is that each poem includes comments posted by readers. Like all online public commentary, some of it is worthwhile, and some is not. Another fun feature is the ability to email any of the poems to friends and family.
Frost Out Loud
Eric Copenhaver’s “labor of love” (read My Robert Frost) is my pick of the day site. The meat of the site is the thirty or so Frost poems, most of which include both the text and an audio reading. A handful also include a reading by Frost himself, and an offsite link to related analysis. “You may find that the combination of the text and sound in this modern-day medium enhances the experience of the poem even more; the text supplements the sound and the sound enhances the text to create a sum greater than the parts.”
Modern American Poetry: Robert Frost
Modern American Poetry is the online companion to “Anthology of Modern American Poetry” from Oxford University Press. It contains literary criticism on thousands of poems from hundreds of American poets, and is a great place to peruse before writing your high-school or college English paper. In fact, if you are particularly proud of your finished paper, you can send it in (see instructions on About the Site, linked from the home page) and perhaps get published.
