The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris
“Once upon a time,, words began to vanish from the language of children.. They disappeared so quietly that at first no one noticed - until one day,, they were gone.. But there is an old kind of magic for fnding what is missing,, and for summoning what has vanished.. If the right spealls are spken,, the lost words might return......””
All over the country,, there are words disappearing from children’s lives.. These are the words of the natural world - Dandelion,, Otter,, Bramble and Acorn,, all gone.. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children’s minds.. The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood..
It is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke.. With acrostic spell--poems by award--winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand--painted illustration by Jackie, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages
