Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Henry's 100 Days of Kindergarten by Nancy Carlson, the mouse takes readers through the highlights of his first months of school, including a Halloween party and a Thanksgiving feast, culminating in a 100th-day gala, complete with cake and jelly beans; Carlson's illustrations unfold in a candy-colored palette to match. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
On the first day of kindergarten, Henry's teacher, Ms. Bradley, announces to the whole class that she will place a jelly bean into a special jar every day until it contains 100 pieces of candy. When they reach their goal, they will celebrate 100 days of kindergarten with a one-of-a-kind party. While the students patiently wait for the big day, they do all kinds of fun activities including coloring pictures, learning new songs, dressing up in costumes for a Halloween parade, having a big Thanksgiving feast, performing a holiday concert, and visiting the school library. In February, the 100th day of school finally arrives and the class celebrates by having a special show and tell—Suzy makes a chain of 100 paper clips, Troy builds a house with 100 popsicle sticks, and Henry surprises everyone by bringing in his great-grandmother Millie, who is 100 years old. After all of the memorable presentations are finished, the twenty students divide up the jelly beans (five each) and enjoy another scrumptious surprise—a big, beautiful cake with 100 candles on it. Young readers will enjoy the colorful cast of animal characters in this charming picture book. The bright, expressive illustrations and engaging text work together to create a wonderful reading experience. This book is perfect for individual, small group or large group read-aloud sessions. Children interested in reading additional kindergarten adventures featuring Carlson's adorable character Henry, should check out the following titles, Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come! and Henry's Show and Tell. 2004, Viking, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-On his first day of kindergarten, Henry learns that his teacher will add a jelly bean to a special jar every day until they reach 100 days of school. As each month passes, the little mouse and his classmates engage in seasonal activities, celebrate holidays, give a concert, and visit the school library. Finally, February arrives and Henry brings his 100-year-old great-grandma to school for show-and-tell. Done in colored markers and pen and ink, Carlson's characteristic paintings are filled with bright colors and homey details, making Henry's classroom a comfortable place for young readers to visit. Pair this with Anne Rockwell's 100 School Days (HarperCollins, 2002) or Rosemary Wells's more detailed Emily's First 100 Days of School (Hyperion, 2000) for a centenary celebration.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
