    I am a person who loves words I love those word a day calendars as a kid I thought it was fun to try and find ways to use that word during the day When I am reading, I do like to pick up new words and phrases My problem is I don t write them down and I do forget them rather quickly now Anyway, this book is about people who collect things Jerome just happens to collect words he loves He has scrapbooks and notebooks full of words organized into category and subject One day, he drops all th I am a person who loves words I love those word a day calendars as a kid I thought it was fun to try and find ways to use that word during the day When I am reading, I do like to pick up new words and phrases My problem is I don t write them down and I do forget them rather quickly now Anyway, this book is about people who collect things Jerome just happens to collect words he loves He has scrapbooks and notebooks full of words organized into category and subject One day, he drops all the books and the words jumble and he sees new phrases together This reminds me of the magnets on the refrigerator with all the words He then begins sharing the words with people and making them feel better with words I understand is a very powerful phrase The point of the story seems to be that words are to be shared with others and it s how we communicate with each other It s a pretty good theme, in my opinion The nephew was not too impressed by this book Now, the niece would have liked itis my guess The nephew does love books, but he said that nothing really happened here Words are everywhere He didn t really connect with this book He didn t call it boring, but he gave it 2 stars

    Words tend to either erect or obliterate boundaries between human beings Thankfully, this is a book about forming bonds in the most unusual way Jerome collected words.Whereas most of Jerome s peers collect video games, cards, devices, etc., his goal is to collect as many words as he can The acts of reading and searching for meaning become essential for his growth and well being because he wants them to be like that He found joy in what others usually perceive as being frivolous, and it genuin Words tend to either erect or obliterate boundaries between human beings Thankfully, this is a book about forming bonds in the most unusual way Jerome collected words.Whereas most of Jerome s peers collect video games, cards, devices, etc., his goal is to collect as many words as he can The acts of reading and searching for meaning become essential for his growth and well being because he wants them to be like that He found joy in what others usually perceive as being frivolous, and it genuinely makes him happy Perhaps the key moment of his journey is when he slips and the words become jumbled He doesn t cry over them, nor does he give up he simply strings them together and uses them to recreate the sources which he drew the words from in the first place, as well as create something new out of them He also finds the simplest words to be incredibly effective in uniting people The book itself gains the reader s attention using simplistic illustrations, colorful pages and words Lots and lots of words You never know which one will help you make it through the day.A definite must read

    I really loved the beginning of this book and even the middle Get this kid a magnetic poetry set, stat I love that he started stringing words together and making poetry and songs.But then it got a little.preachy It became much less a story about a real boy who liked to learn new words andabout an allegorical boy who changed the world, one word at a time Which if it had started like that, it wouldn t have annoyed me at all But as written, it was a little jarring.

    I really like using this book as an example of expansive vocabulary when I am doing storytime I ve taken it to my children s school and a read aloud and then added in some vocabulary activities like vocab guessing games using the words from the book , or re naming a color, or found word poems The instructional options for this book are truly limitless Other great vocabulary building books are Animalia by Graeme Base, 13 Words by Lemony Snicket, and The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spire I really like using this book as an example of expansive vocabulary when I am doing storytime I ve taken it to my children s school and a read aloud and then added in some vocabulary activities like vocab guessing games using the words from the book , or re naming a color, or found word poems The instructional options for this book are truly limitless Other great vocabulary building books are Animalia by Graeme Base, 13 Words by Lemony Snicket, and The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires Alexis S

    In this picture book, Peter H Reynolds does for words and literacy exactly what he s accomplished with his previous titles on art, he makes them cool and wraps them in a clever, philosophical package.Jerome collects words, and he even organizes them into categories But an accident leads to the realization that sometimes words that seem to have no relationship to each other actually gain new meaning when placed by different, unrelated words Not only does he start to realize the power of words In this picture book, Peter H Reynolds does for words and literacy exactly what he s accomplished with his previous titles on art, he makes them cool and wraps them in a clever, philosophical package.Jerome collects words, and he even organizes them into categories But an accident leads to the realization that sometimes words that seem to have no relationship to each other actually gain new meaning when placed by different, unrelated words Not only does he start to realize the power of words to express feelings, to move an audience or to make others feel understood, but he also realizes that he need not keep those words squirreled away Instead, he should give them away I loved how, after all this build up, the book concludes with these lines from the boy who loved words so much Jerome had no words to describe how happy that made him unpaged Since he s shared all his words with others, he literally has nowords to give, but he also would be hard pressed to explain his feelings This book is perfect for youngsters just learning new vocabulary but also for those who gravitate to words that simply sing on the tongue or feel in the mouth or are interesting just because of their shapes As they will know, there are words that simply lead us into new worlds and those that seem perfect for what they represent Ah
