Publisher Description:

The classic story about the power of words.

Donavan Allen doesn't collect coins, comics, or trading cards like most kids. He collects words--big words, little words, soft words, and silly words. Whenever Donavan finds a new word, he writes it on a slip of paper and puts it in his word jar.

But one day, Donavan discovers that his word jar is full. He can't put any new words in without taking some of the old words out--and he wants to keep all his words. Donavan doesn't know what to do, until a visit to his grandma provides him with the perfect solution.
