Roni Schotter’s picture book about a boy who loved words promotes appreciation, communication and inquiry.
“Selig loved everything about words… Whenever Selig heard a word he liked, he’d shout it out loud, jot it down on a slip of paper, then stuff it into his pocket to save.” He had words stuffed in his pockets, shirt, socks and even under his hat.
There are words that make his heart soar and laugh and also words that make his lonely and sad. He decides it is his mission to spread words to whoever he thinks will appreciate them.
