The Lost Words is an enchanting book of poems by Robert Macfarlane, designed to be read aloud to conjure up creatures such as the barn owl, otter and goldfinch. Each poem is beautifully illustrated in watercolour by Jackie Morris.
We would love all children in Herefordshire to be able to explore this wonderful book and the wildlife that inspired it.
Herefordshire Wildlife Trust and their resident artist Richard Bavin are raising funds to donate a copy to every primary and special school in the county.
