Reviews

"[In The Keeper of Wild Words] 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. The last page forms an envelope for readers' own vocabulary collections. Sweet-and savory."--Kirkus Reviews
"[T]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
