About the author:
A lifelong reader, writer, and logophile, Evelyn Dunbar Webb is the recipient of numerous awards for her children's stories, poetry, and essays.

After more than four decades as a mother, business owner, English teacher, and workshop instructor, she returned to her first love-spinning tales-in 2016. When she is not writing, she spends her days reading, drawing, or gardening.

A native of Connecticut now living in rural central Virginia, Evelyn shares a home with her husband, a mountain of books (many hand-me-downs), and the occasional grandchild.

The Word Collector

Authored by Evelyn L Dunbar Webb
Illustrated by Matt Tyree

First in a grammar and composition series for 6- to 9-year-olds, The Word Collector features Priscilla, a word collector too shy to share her words, making it difficult for her to make friends. Written and illustrated in a style that captures and keeps students' interest, the story encourages a love of language-and a willingness to help others-as it reviews the four main parts of speech: noun, verb, adverb, and adjective.

Drawn from lessons and activities used in the classroom, the series is designed to complement traditional textbooks, with topics covering all eight parts of speech, punctuation, capitalization, word families, and sentence structure. Each title offers a companion workbook ideal for student practice, with puzzles and focused activities aligned with Virginia and Common Core Language Arts standards.

Ideal for traditional classroom and homeschool settings.
