The Keeper of Wild Words
Explore & cherish the natural world throughout the generations.
This beautiful book is close to our hearts - written by founder of Free the Ocean's mom, Brooke Smith, The Keeper of Wild Words is a touching tale of a grandmother and her granddaughter exploring and cherishing the natural world.
Words, the woods, and the world illuminate this quest to save the most important pieces of our language—by saving the very things they stand for.
When Mimi finds out her favorite words—simple words like apricot, blackberry, and buttercup—are disappearing from the English language, she elects her granddaughter Brook as their Keeper. And did you know? The only way to save words is to know them.
The Keeper of Wild Words is for any one who longs to get outside and learn more about nature and the environment. A loving portrait of the special relationship that grandparents have with their grandchildren, this book makes a wonderful gift for children and adults alike!
Every purchase of the Keeper of Wild Words funds the removal of 10 pieces of plastic from the ocean.

I love this book and the storyline is perfect for me to share with my granddaughter. The illustrations are so beautiful - it is a joy for the senses! The day I read it, we had the special privilege of seeing monarch butterfly in our backyard!
This book is so beautiful, almost magical. It's message is so needed in this world where technology has taken away words that we use to speak. We abbreviate and forget to really think about what words can mean. The illustrations are s well done; a book that all ages can enjoy
The first one I received was damaged but after writing to customer service they are sending a replacement. I liked what the book said and the illustrations were very quaint. Only big issue I have is that it should have been gender neutral.
So perfect for my friend to read with her granddaughter! Not only will they enjoy the story and beautiful illustrations, but it will also be an excellent teaching tool. Can't wait to give it to them!
Beautiful book. A very touching story.
