Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Jessica is worried. On the 95th day of first grade, her teacher announces that the class will celebrate the 100th day of school by bringing in collections of 100 things. Being a chronic worrier, Jessica thinks and thinks all week. What will she bring? 100 ice cubes? Too melty. Marshmallows? Too sticky. Her siblings suggest 100 lipsticks and 100 yo-yos, but Jessica rejects those ideas. When her classmates start bringing in their collections, Jessica is in anguish. Why didn't she think of peanuts, or paper clips, or peppermints? The 100th day dawns, and Jessica still doesn't know what to bring. Will inspiration strike in time?

This book is for all the small worrywarts out there, the ones who fret over losing their first tooth, missing the school bus, or getting their math homework right. Jessica's ingenious solution incorporates the ideas and, most important, the love from her family. Arthur Howard's cartoony illustrations capture Jessica's big-eyed anxiety and big-smiled relief at the end of her 100th day worries. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

For Jessica, a worrier by nature, there's a dark underside to her first grade's 100th Day celebration. In honor of the occasion, her teacher wants each student to round up a collection of 100 small things. The girl spends an entire week ruminating--"100 ice cubes? Too melty. 100 marshmallows? Too sticky. 100 toothpicks? Too pointy"--and the pressure builds as all the other kids' collections start rolling in. But Jessica is fortunate in her family: seeing her bereft and despondent on the morning of the 100th day, each member pitches in (10 buttons from her father, 10 barrettes from her sister, etc.), and her collection of their contributions (which includes 10 "Xs" from a comforting letter written by her mother) is hailed by her teacher as "100 bits of love!" This is a knowing and funny book that succeeds without patronizing its fretful heroine or sentimentalizing the supportive response of her family. Cuyler's (The Biggest Best Snowman) tight text keeps the story moving apace; Howard's (the Mr. Putter and Tabby series) crisp and colorful cartoon illustrations rendered with an energetic ink line add just the right touch of freneticism. Ages 5-8. (Jan.)

I found this book to naturally combine important math concepts (different ways to get 100 items) with the many emotions and experiences that the average child faces. I believe children (and even adults) will find themselves in the pages of this book as they relate to the times when the creative energies are not flowing and the deadlines are fast approaching.

We first checked this book out of the library and we just love it. The story is so refreshing and Jessica's(the main character and the worrier) family really comes through for her. My five-year-old loves the math concept: the different ways to get to 100. This book reinforces a little learning in a loving and thoughtful way.

I came across this book today when I was reading with a kindergartner at the elementary school. Guilty myself of being a worrier, the title caught my attention, but so did the entire book and illustrations! It was good for educating the student on numbers and counting. Most importantly, the book's message really made me appreciate the book. The girl worries and worries but in the end her family supports her and she ends up having the best "100 things" in the class. Her teacher calls it "100 bits of love" because her family was willing to give little bits of what they collected or found in the house all because of the love they had for her! They loved her and supported her.

Take home message - we shouldn't worry about the little things in life, for we are loved and appreciated and all will turn out well. We may be uncertain with things in our life, but we should trust that day will turn out fine, and we should embrace whatever comes in our lives. Also, bring love to your friends and family; you'll make them smile and shine in their daily life no matter if it's the little things!

I teach 2nd grade, and I read this book as a read aloud to my students. The students enjoyed and listened to it, and several students wanted to read it independently after I finished it.
