Today is a special day for Jake and the rest of his classmates. They will celebrate their 100th day of school, each student creating a collection that add up to 100 objects to bring to display in class. Jake was in such a rush to get out the door and on the bus, headed for school, that he left something very important behind. When he saw his friends with there projects he knew he did not grab his backpack which had his album of 100 memorable photos. His grandmother is suppose to bring a surprise to his class but it would be too late to get her to bring his backpack. He thought this would not be a fun day for him.
When he arrived at school the principal noticed that Jake was in tears. He explained his problem and then she took him to her office and they created a new collection. He was so relieved and they headed to his classroom to put his collection on display. The day was a big success and all the collections were very inventive and imaginative on behalf of the students. Will he get to share his photo collection he forgot at home? He went to a lot of work, but he enjoyable experience. It all worked out in the end.
The author writes a fun story of celebrating the 100th day of school. The story teaches the children camaraderie, a math lesson in counting, imagination, and how to have fun while learning. Also, to never give up, always persevere! The illustrator took the author's story and created some very cute characters. Two of the character illustrations that I really thought stood out were, the little girl with 100 beads in her hair and Aunt Lula, they were so endearing! This is a book I know children will enjoy to read over and over again.
I highly recommend this book.
