All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's vocabulary - words of the natural world including dandelion, otter, bramble and acorn. How can we make sure children remember to look at nature and enjoy it? The acclaimed illustrator talks with nature writer Alex Preston about nature writing and her collaboration with the author Robert Macfarlane in a book which is a Sunday Times Bestseller, The Lost Words. 'Gorgeous to look at and to read. Give it to a child to bring back the magic of language - and its scope' Jeanette Winterson, Guardian. Alex Preston is the author of As Kingfishers Catch Fire. With a title taken from the poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins, the bestselling and award-winning novelist, most recently of the critically acclaimed In Love and War, talks about the inspiration behind his beautiful book.
