The Lost Words

Robert MacFarlane

A book for the words that are disappearing from children's vocabulary and their way of life.  It's a way of life that includes rambling and exploring and nature.  MacFarlane's lyrical acrostic poems are accompanied by the rich paintings of Morris.  It's a beautiful oversized book that we liesurely take our time with.  I loved the concept so much that I even bought the accompanying postcards to send to friends who needed some "lost words" to inspire them. 

A hidden title preceeds each poem.
