"I love words!" says Ava. "Words can be tiny, prickly, big, and bright!" In this delightful romp through one little girl's discovery of words, readers meet Ava — who asks: "What was it like before I had words?"
Using a bright cheery palette, visual humor (and yes, even a big pile of words climbed by Ava), Grant Snider deftly follows the baby babbles, toddler questions, and little kid discoveries that are the hallmarks of how kids learn to "use their words." For fans of books like Dear Girl and I Am Peace, My Words is a book that will make readers want to talk about the things they say and excite them about the giant world of words.
"As the story proceeds, Ava gains more and more language, learning to talk 'to friends in marvelous ways,' culminating in writerly ambitions; the last page shows the pink-dressed, cowboy-booted child holding taped-together pages entitled 'Ava’s Book,' reading aloud to an assortment of toys and stuffed animals." — Kirkus Reviews
