The Lost Words
The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
Hamish Hamilton have created an activity pack to celebrate the first anniversary of this important book’s publication on Friday 5th October 2018.
Included in the pack are 8 Spotter’s Cards. Each shows a different creature from the book and information about each creature that you can hide around the library or the children’s department or even just lay out on a table. There are Creature Challenge leaflets to give out to children to help them find each of the creatures and tick them off as they go along.
We would love to hear feedback about how you use the pack. You can do this on social media by using #TheLostWords and tagging @PenguinUKBooks and @readingagency.
