Donovan asks his grandmother for advice as to what he should do with his collection of words in a jar, and she shows Donovan how he can share his word jar. The senior tenants begin to take the words and apply them to each other, causing great laughter and friendship among the normally grumpy tenants. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Trophies, 2005)
