The Lost Words Book

From bestselling Landmarks author Robert Macfarlane -- a gorgeous, illustrated collection of spell-poems to re-wild the language of childrenAll over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives -- words from the natural world, from the countryside and the landscape. Words like Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn should be familiar to every child: they are the simple, beautiful symbols of nature as seen by a child. They represent a space of discovery and imagination, of play and freedom. Yet this rich landscape is rapidly fading from children's minds.The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of the poetry of nature words and the living glory of our plant- and animal-filled countryside. With acrostic spell-poems by peerless wordsmith Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.Joint winner of the British Book Award Children's Book of the Year 2018Read More
