Summary
From the beloved bestselling creator of The Dot and our own Happy Dreamer comes an inspiring story about the transformative and profound power of words.

A New York Times Bestseller

Named an Outstanding Literary Work for Children by the NAACP

Some people collect stamps. Some people collect coins. Some people collect art. And Jerome? Jerome collected words . . .

In this extraordinary new tale from Peter H. Reynolds, Jerome discovers the magic of the words all around him -- short and sweet words, two-syllable treats, and multisyllable words that sound like little songs. Words that connect, transform, and empower.

From the creator of The Dot , I Am Human , and Happy Dreamer comes a celebration of finding your own words -- and the impact you can have when you share them with the world.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Jerome, a slim, brown-skinned boy with a tuft of purple hair, loves words. He doesn't collect stamps or coins or baseball cards like other people; Jerome collects words. He writes down his favorites such as mysterious, whispery, serious, and poetic onto small pieces of paper and arranges them in labeled albums. Some words are short, some have multiple syllables, and some are simply pleasing to utter out loud: vociferous, effervescent, serendipity. The more words he knew the more clearly he could share with the world what he was thinking, feeling, and dreaming. Though collecting words for himself has been enjoyable, Jerome decides there is a much better and more satisfying use for his collection. Pastel and white backgrounds make young Jerome stand out while his words on yellow slips of paper float around many of the charming illustrations. Pair with Kate Banks' Max's Words (2006) and Roni Schotter's The Boy Who Loved Words (2006) for explorations of a similar theme.--Owen, Maryann Copyright 2018 Booklist"
