To provide a copy of The Lost Words, by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, to every primary school in Sheffield
by Joanna Dobson in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom
Just wanted to add a little more, for books for the library. Libraries make learning democratic as you don't need to pay to use them. And libraries were my first access to books. Thank you Vernon, for all you and the team have done. Stay strong and grow. Trees such beautiful beings and you are one of the best.
Great idea for all Sheffield schools to have access to this book whilst at the same time raising awareness across the city of the Vernon Oak's fight against Sheffield City Council and their plan to cut him down ... shame on SCC!
Believing that every student at Sheffield Primary School will benefit greatly by having a copy of The Lost Words. May it serve and inspire your road ahead. Best Wishes, Valarie Budayr
Great to see more schools in line to receive this fantastic book. If kids can name and identify with nature around them, I hope that as adults they will never sign contacts like the Sheffield tree "management" one. Best of luck!
When we were approached at the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust to see if we would like to support this fantastic project, we were really excited to do so. Bringing nature to children in as many ways as possible is so important to us. Personally I think the book is beautiful and will be buying a copy for my own girls and am delighted to support this project.
