 “[A] love letter to those who take delight in words…Enchanting.”

- Kirkus Reviews, The Word Collector


“This book is short and sweet yet packs a powerful punch. Reynolds’s signature ink-and-gouache cartoons manage to capture both the joy of learning and the power of kindness.”

- School Library Journal, The Word Collector


“Pastel and white backgrounds make young Jerome stand out while his words on yellow slips of paper float around many of the charming illustrations.”

- Booklist, The Word Collector
