The Word Collector by Peter Reynolds - ADVISABLE

Reynolds, Peter H. The Word Collector.  PICTURE BOOK.  Orchard Books (Scholastic),  2018.  $18.  9780545865029

Jerome loves collecting words.  Any word that catches his ear and eye and heart.  One day as he is transporting his collection, he has an accident.  As he picks up his words he starts to see them in brand new ways and realizes he needs to share these fabulous words with everyone.

What a fun book to share with any child who is complaining about expanding their vocabulary!  Jerome’s love for words shines through clearly and my eyes delighted to read the many words that Reynolds chose for the illustrations!
