The Word Collector

The Word Collector by Peter H. Reynolds is very original and especially thrilling for budding wordsmiths. The young collector is enamored with words of all sorts, even ones where he doesn’t know the meaning but are marvelous to say (for example, vociferous and effervescent) His collection grows and grows. He finds ways to use and share them and realizes words are the perfect vehicle for showing the world what you are thinking, feeling or dreaming. The whimsical illustrations are really fun.
