Happy 100th Day! by Susan Milford Illustrated by Mary DePalma

Milford, Susan. Depalma, Mary. Happy 100th Day!, 40 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2011. $16.99. Graham doesn't like school, especially reading! His teacher, Miss Currier is excited to celebrate the 100th day in school. As the days go by, Graham becomes a better reader without even knowing it, and celebrates the 1ooth day by reading 1oo books. Although this is a little long, the story is fun and there are counting activities in the back of the book. It tells you what items on each page to count, and they all equal 100. This could be used not only to promote number sense, but to encourage students that don't like school as well. EL(K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: AM.
