Peter H. Reynolds is the author and/or illustrator of over 50 children's books including The Dot. This book was the inspiration for International Dot Day, which encourages creativity. This year over 10 million children and adults are expected to participate in over 170 countries. Peter’s new book The Word Collector, is the feature book in our January Picture and Family Book Box. It's the story of a young boy named Jerome who loves to collect words. Jerome’s discovery of the meaning of the words and how he can use and share them makes for another heart-warming, delightful book from one of my favourite author/illustrators.
