The Word Collector  by Peter H. Reynolds

The Word Collector It’s always been my thought that it’s nice for people to collect things. And while we see that some people collect coins, and some collect stamps or art, little Jerome collected words. All kinds of words. Words that he read, words that he saw. And as Jerome built quite a mighty collection of words, what he did with those words is part of what makes his story so amazing. As you read this story, maybe think of what you would like to collect, and just what  you might want to do with your amazing collection.
