Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Schuster
There are lots of ways to count to 100. One hundred toes on 10 barefoot children and a centipede with 50 legs on each side are just two examples from this charming book. With its rhymes, humor, and familiar situations, the book makes math both relevant and fun. For example, one page asks, "If you eat 10 salty peanuts every minute for 10 minutes, what do you get? 100 peanuts. And... (big mistake) a tummyache!" These silly situations are actually introducing the basics of addition and multiplication, although kids will probably be having too much fun to realize it! The book would benefit from allowing readers to actually count the 100 objects in every illustration. (It's only possible in some of them.) The pictures are bright and lively and feature a variety of kids from diverse backgrounds.
Library Journal - Library Journal
K-Gr 3-A clever way to teach children the many ways they can get to 100. Teachers will appreciate the questioning rhymes that illustrate how to count in groups of 1, 5, 10, or 20. "If 20 children each drop 5 papers on the floor, what do you get? 100 papers. And...(I would guess) an awful mess." The pictures feature a multiethnic classroom filled with smiling faces, lots of action, and vibrant color. Some of the illustrations allow children to actually count out the corresponding objects on the page, such as 100 toes or 100 legs on a centipede. The numbers 1 to 100 are printed on the endpapers in colorful blocks, with the objects from the rhymes interspersed throughout. A solid title to read aloud on the 100th day of school-or any other day.-Lisa Gangemi Krapp, Rockville Centre Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

What can I say about this book? All I can say is that I'm glad I bought it for my kids. It's become one of their favorites. Even I laugh when I read it to them.

My students love this book. They giggle at the silly rhymes and illustrations every time I read it to them. Thanks Trudy and Beth for creating a book that truly captures the fun of the 100 Days of School Celebration!
