Bookspeed | Lost Words
All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives - such as Dandelion, Otter, Bramble, Acorn. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading as our lives become ever more urbanised and focussed on interiors. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature which makes everyone young - including children.
Recommended age 0-5 years
