Children Ages 6+ • 14 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Xe Sands establishes a deep and slightly raspy voice for Mimi, who decides to take her granddaughter, Brook, on a scavenger hunt to find "wild words"--words found in nature that are in danger of becoming forgotten. Brook is also on a mission to find the perfect item for show-and-tell. Sands emphasizes each of the "wild words." Her pacing slows, and the music transitions as the scenery changes from the meadow to the forest. Brook's youthful voice contrasts with Mimi's and gives the story a lightheartedness and a sense of childhood. Listeners will be mesmerized by the tranquility of the outdoors and the wonder of words that Mimi hopes Brook will keep and hold dear. M.D. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
