From a New York TimesÂ bestselling author and illustratorÂ comes an inspiring picture book about the power of words.
Some people collect stamps. Some people collect coins. Some people collect art. And Jerome? Jerome collected words . . .
In this illustrated picture book from Peter H. Reynolds, a little boy discovers the magic of the words all around him — short and sweet words, complicated words, words that stand out.
But one day his carefully curated collection of words gets messy, and that’s when Jerome discovers that words that connect, transform and empower. So Jerome starts using his words, and that’s when they become powerful.Â
