We are losing so much financially, and environmentally, due to bad management, and poor leadership, but to lose the names of animals we have known and loved as children, is a step too far for me....

As a girl who was raised in rural Northern Ireland and who lived in London for 10 years, I know the value of the countryside. This project is just excellent

I’m excited to think that through these donationn children in primary schools won’t be cheated of their heritage. And the lost words are so precious, so full of poetry.

We are truly lost if we loose the bluebells. Without the acorn, we loose our stories of how we too can grow from something so small into something as tall and wise as our ancient beautiful oaks. Our children's destiny is woven into the destiny of nature. One cannot exist without the other. Saving these words is not an option.

Think this is so important. Urban kids especially need to be connected to nature. Open their eyes, broaden their horizons ...

This book is a treasure. Kids need access to the magical world of non-human beings and this book of stunning art and sweet spells gives them not just a taste of that but an entire banquet in a book. Every child needs this book.

To reach all the Primary Schools in London would be amazing. Best of luck with your campaign and keep up your great work!
