Robert Macfarlane

The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris is a truly remarkable book. The two authors teamed up to produce this spelling book out of concern for the disappearance of natural words from children’s vocabularies. The power of Macfarlane’s acrostic poems is enhanced by his partner’s beautiful hand-painted artwork, making The Lost Words a stunning combination of art and poetry. The message in the book has touched many hearts, reminding readers of their profound connections with nature, which is continuously vanishing in our modern world.
