In this exuberant follow-up to Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten, the border-collie teacher kicks off a celebration of the 100th day of class by asking her students to bring in "100 of some wonderful, one-hundred-full thing!" The results, reported in alphabetical order of the student's name and species, brim with the humor of children giving their ingenuity full rein. Brenda the beaver almost dozes off while gluing a 100-link paper chain, and Ian the iguana proudly escorts "a relative who's lived a hundred years." As readers of the previous book will anticipate, Miss Bindergarten works every bit as hard as her students: she pins 100 bows to her dress, makes a paper snake with 100 colorful scales and puts together a roomful of related activities. Once again, Wolff's sturdy, genially observed illustrations prove a perfect match for Slate's rhyming text, and together they build momentum to the big event--a party that's certain to inspire similar festivities in kindergartens everywhere. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)

Children's Literature - Emily Ferren
Great, motivational, funny, and creative-the children in Miss Bindergarten's class celebrate enthusiastically the first 100 days of kindergarten. Each student brings in 100 things-the students are busy with their project. The result is paper chains, stickers, 100-day punch, hats, blocks, cereal, flowers, and crayons. Math becomes fun. Each turn of the page is a surprise. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and convey the festivities of celebration.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Miss Bindergarten, who helped readers learn the alphabet in Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten (Dutton, 1996), returns in this lively picture book. To celebrate the 100th day of school, she asks her students to bring in "100 of some wonderful, one-hundred-full thing." As each of the children, whose names begin with letters from A to Z, gather together 100 objects, their teacher makes her own preparations, shopping for food and supplies with her pet cockatoo, preparing refreshments, and jazzing up the classroom. Always stylish (even though she is a dog), Miss Bindergarten decorates her dress with 100 multicolored bows. Creativity, hard work, and enthusiasm are catching and the children strive tirelessly to bring in imaginative projects. On the day of the celebration they arrive with 100 balloons, 100 ants in an ant farm, 100 marbles, and other surprises. Brightly colored pictures filled with details, some on double-paged spreads, and a sprightly rhyming text with the repeated phrase, "Miss Bindergarten gets ready for the 100th day of kindergarten," make this a great read-aloud or read-alone.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL
Kirkus Reviews
The ebullient canine kindergarten teacher (Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten, 1996) is preparing for the 100th day of school. For homework, Miss Bindergarten tells her students to bring "100 of some wonderful, one-hundredful thing." In verse, each student (alphabetically, with names that start with letters from A to Z) creatively undertakes the task, by building forts made from 100 popsicle sticks, to drawing a portrait of a 100-year-old face, to placing 100 stickers head-to-toe. In the meantime, busy Miss Bindergarten works hard behind the scenes to make the party perfect. As did its predecessor, this spirited educational tool yields itself to classroom tie-in fun and makes for read-aloud enjoyment; it's a bonus that children will also grasp the concept of 100. Miss Bindergarten's enthusiasm is irresistible, while the students provide a grand mix of ingenious creations. (Picture book. 3-6)
