Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris
“Acorn,” “otter,” and “willow” are just a few of the entries you’ll find in this gorgeous, large-format children’s book, The Lost Words. Author Robert Macfarlane, along with artist Jackie Morris, successfully imbues a sense of wonder into words that describe our natural surroundings, but are no longer included in the Oxford Junior Dictionary.
