Review by Booklist Reviews

"The title reveals the concept, and those familiar with Goldstone's Great Estimations (2006) and Greater Estimations (2008) will have no doubt that it's carried out with style. Each double-page spread of this well-designed, large-format book presents several ideas for celebrating the 100th day, and even the suggestions are numbered, such as "10: String 100 cereal loops to make a tasty necklace"; "49: Line up 100 dominoes and then tip them over"; and "100: Blow out 100 candles." Throughout, the clear photos of children and objects show up distinctly against the clean, white backgrounds. The chart illustrating "Say ‘hello' in 100 languages" attractively presents that idea as well. Along the bottom of each spread, a number line divided into a hundred segments indicates what numbers are presented on the current pages. Safety warnings and notes on activities are appended. To meet the annual demand from preschool, kindergarten, and early primary-grade teachers, libraries will want multiple copies of this colorful, upbeat idea book." Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 3—Bright color photographs that pop from white backgrounds invite youngsters to celebrate the first 100 days of school by doing things: "Recycle 100 cans"; "Walk 100 steps in any direction." "Make a snake with 100 beads"; and even mop. Highlighting the ideas shown on each spread is a number line in 100 hues, which are also backgrounds for saying "hello" in 100 languages. By measuring 100 inches or 100 grams, counting eyes on 50 owls or legs on 25 elephants, and predicting the most frequent number to appear when a die is rolled 100 times, youngsters explore a variety of math concepts. Whether reading 100 books, composing a poem with 100 letters, or writing a short story with 100 words, these ideas add literacy skills to the children's math awareness. Various collections are artfully arranged, as are designs incorporating 100 circles, 100 triangles, and 100 hearts. Finally, children can celebrate by hanging up 100 streamers, blowing up 100 balloons, and blowing out 100 candles. Activities requiring adult supervision are noted on the last page, as are additional ideas. A more clever collection of 100 ideas is hard to imagine. A must-have for schools celebrating this special day.—Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN [Page 74]. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
