Make each trip outside a nature hunt…
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.
“Touching, poetic, noble. The best use of [The Keeper of Wild Words] is to take children out on a nature hunt to collect and/or identify said listed items. Using the large envelope at the end of the book is a good way to make a keepsake of the experience.”-School Library Journal
“Kloepper’s soft illustrations feature green and brown earth tones that frame the white, matte pages; bursts of red, purple, and other spot colors enliven the scenes. Sensory details allow the protagonist to hear, see, smell, taste, and hold the wild.” KIRKUS
