This beautiful book is close to our hearts - written by founder of Free the Oceans 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, 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.
Every purchase of the Keeper of Wild Words funds the removal of 10 pieces of plastic from the ocean.
- 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!
This a wonderful book that expresses so much that is close to my heart and allows it to be shared with children. I plan on getting a few more copies - one for my local library and for my great nieces and nephews.
This is a lovely book to help introduce children to nature. I grew up at a time when we played outdoors in the woods all day. I bought this book as a gift for my granddaughter. I'm certain she will enjoy it!
not only is this a book with a wonderful story, but the illustrations are amazing!
Perfect gift to introduce a child to nature!
this is a lovely and delightful book! One to be shared!!
