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 and Happy Dreamer comes a celebration of finding your own words - and the impact you can have when you share them with the world.

Another thought provoking read by Peter Reynolds. This book celebrates the beauty and power of words: "The more words he knew the more / clearly he could share with the world / what he was thinking, feeling, and dreaming."

Well written and illustrated. My son loves reading it and it's the perfect message and length for a bedtime read.
