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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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.)

Here's a link to the great "100 Day Smarter" badges I found on Amazon...
A little wordy for a Kindergartener to read by themselves but otherwise nice story.
