Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Hannah is very excited about the party her class is going to have to celebrate 100 days in school. When her teacher asks each person in the class to bring 100 things to share on that day, Hannah decides to bring in buttons. After she collects 100 buttons, Hannah begins to feel sick. Unfortunately, Hannah's mother keeps her home on the 100th day of school to recuperate. Hannah is so sad because she will miss the party. But young readers will smile with Hannah when she returns to school on the 101st day. This book has a clever twist on the "100 Days of School" theme. Children will identify with Hannah's disappointment at not being able to attend a party due to sickness. The text uses simple sentences and repetitive vocabulary, which will help emerging readers. The sweet illustrations add pizzazz to the age appropriate text. This is a book children will want to read more than once. Part of the "Ready-To-Read" series 2003, Aladdin/Simon & Schuster

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Eagerly anticipating the party celebrating the first 100 days of school (and "That is a long time to be in school"), Hannah bounces around with excitement. As part of the festivities, students are invited to bring a similar number of "little things" to share with the class. Over the course of the week, the girl carefully collects and counts out 100 buttons, some white, some mixed, some shaped like cats, and even a few shaped like diamonds. Unfortunately, on the day of the event she comes down with a cold, sneezing her neat pile of buttons into a big mess. Disappointed to have missed the party, Hannah returns to school on Monday, resolutely taking her button collection with her. Happily, the children are marking "one hundred plus one" that day, and the large orange button on her sweater makes her collection complete. This entertaining easy-reader contains lively color illustrations of active kids and classroom scenes that will engage the audience. New readers will relate to the theme, and although the ending is a bit tidy and anticlimactic, children learning to read on their own will enjoy this simple tale.-Piper L.
