Other books by Peter H. Reynolds include The Dot, Happy Dreamer, and I am Human - now a New York Time’s bestseller.

I’m am delighted to “connect the dots” with so many people who share a love of words!  As Jerome shares in my book The Word Collector, there are endless words to savor . . .  short and sweet words, two syllable treats, and multi-syllable words that sound like little songs. 

Words that connect, transform, and empower.

Sign up here to be an official Word Collector, help be a fellow champion of the power of words to change the world, and share your stories, photos and arts with me and the rest of The Word Collector community!

"Kids will be inspired to "collect" interesting words that strike their own fancy. The book also carries the strong and clear message that words are powerful tools for expressing what we are "thinking, feeling, and dreaming."
