Kindergarten-Grade 3-A clever way to teach children the many ways they can get to 100. Teachers will appreciate the questioning rhymes that illustrate how to count in groups of 1, 5, 10, or 20. "If 20 children each drop 5 papers on the floor, what do you get? 100 papers. And...(I would guess) an awful mess." The pictures feature a multiethnic classroom filled with smiling faces, lots of action, and vibrant color. Some of the illustrations allow children to actually count out the corresponding objects on the page, such as 100 toes or 100 legs on a centipede. The numbers 1 to 100 are printed on the endpapers in colorful blocks, with the objects from the rhymes interspersed throughout. A solid title to read aloud on the 100th day of school-or any other day.

100 Days Of School (32 pp.; $21.90; Sept.; 0-7613-1271-4): Readers will want to try the more interesting variations on math Harris has devised, e.g., addition and subtraction using clowns, trains, blackberry pie, and centipedes. Harris demonstrates that numbers can be broken down into recognizable units that can be manipulated and remembered: If ``10 tired children all take off their shoes, what do you get? Lots of bare feet . . . and 100 toes!'' Johnson's brilliant artwork will make children forget they're learning, complementing the whimsical text as it slyly works in the basics. A math-class must, but also at home in story hours. (Picture book. 5-8) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Beth Griffis Johnson does wonderfully with the illustrations. She has given the book a zesty, almost celebration look. And there's plenty to look at after the text has been read. I think this book could be a favorite for your children. I bought it for my future grandchildren . . . whenever that's going to be...
