Publisher Comments:

Donavan is fascinated by words. They seem to leap out at him from books, signs, even the back of cereal boxes. He savors each word as he learns to say it and discovers its meaning. He keeps the words he collects on slips of paper in a big glass jar. But one day the jar is almost full and Donavan has a dilemma. How can he make room for new words without giving up all the terrific words already in his jar? A visit to his grandmother provides the unexpected solution in this heartwarming story about how important words can be.

Synopsis:

Donavan Allen collects words by writing what he likes on a slip of paper and putting it in his word jar. But one day Donavan discovers that his word jar is nearly full. How can he make room for new words? Illustrations.

How can he make room for new words without giving up all the terrific words already in his jar? A visit to his grandma shows Donavan that sharing words can be just as much fun as collecting them.

This is a wonderful story that I do each year with my students--We start our own word jar. It really is amazing how my students add to the jar, know the words and can't wait to read Donavan's next words. When Donovan's Double Trouble is available in paperback, I will purchase a class set of this lovable character! Thank you Mrs. DeGross--Keep Writing!
