This story teaches children about the journey of words and collecting items. The children in the story are fascinated with collecting items they are interested in. The main character decides to collect words from magazines. His brothers go on a journey with him on how words are created and reordered. This book is for children who are 7 to 8 years old. The story has many interesting transitions in it.
This book I thought was wonderfully written! I love that it was written about Max, who is pretty young, and he collects words. This would get students this age interested in learning because they read about it.

Max's friends all have collections and they won't share. Max begins collecting words and the magic of vocabulary unfolds as Max realizes that he can use words to create stories.
When Max cuts out words from magazines and newspapers, collecting them the way his brothers collect stamps and coins, they all learn about words, sentences, and storytelling.
