As a homeschooling mom, I found "The Word Collector" to be the best combination of a sweet story and an effective learning tool. My son and daughter loved following Priscilla's journey to build friendships and use her words. This is a beautiful picture book that aids in learning verbs, nouns, adverbs, and adjectives. Great for a child's nightstand or a teacher's bookshelf. Do yourself a favor and grab one for the kiddos and the teachers in your life!
Perfect companion for grammar lessons! Strengthens the concept of parts of speech while teaching life lessons about sharing and making friends. My grandson loved the story, as well as the gorgeous illustrations throughout--Pricilla is so adorable! This would be a wonderful tool for traditional teachers or homeschool teachers to reinforce nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs lessons!
