Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
These school activities look like fun from the cover to the last page. All the children are working on something in this title from the “Let’s Celebrate” series, which supports social studies cultural curriculum standards. Images seen on the pages are in the form of full color photographs, designed to help students absorb the information by adding repetition of words and ideas. Early readers are encouraged to find new words to add to their vocabulary, with a little help from the brief glossary. Abramovitz has also included a table of contents, read more section, index, and Internet sites. Children from different cultural backgrounds are seen honoring their first hundred school days by trying to summarize some things they have learned. All activities and projects revolve around the number 100. They include counting, jumping, blowing bubbles, measuring, and making things. All activities have a brightly colored page to attract young readers as they work alone or help their peers. Looking at the book many children may ask: What did I learn about in my first 100 days? Whether a school celebrates in January or February this celebration may give both students and teachers a lot of good ideas to pursue in commemoration of the first 100 days of a school year. All of the children pictured seem to enjoy the idea of a school celebration featuring the premise that learning is fun. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 5 to 7.
