Miss Bindergarten, the world's best kindergarten teacher, is getting ready for another milestone. Tomorrow she and her class will have been together for 100 days. To celebrate, each student must bring "100 of some wonderful, one-hundred-full thing!" At night, while the students go to work assembling their projects, Miss Bindergarten is working, too, making special surprises for the class. The 100th day of kindergarten is bound to be unforgettable! Children will delight in hearing about this special event, a common cause for celebration in kindergartens today.
Illustrated by Ashley Wolff.
In this exuberant follow-up to Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten, the border-collie teacher kicks off a celebration of the 100th day of class by asking her students to bring in "100 of some wonderful, one-hundred-full thing!" The results, reported in alphabetical order of the student's name and species, brim with the humor of children giving their ingenuity full rein. Brenda the beaver almost dozes off while gluing a 100-link paper chain, and Ian the iguana proudly escorts "a relative who's lived a hundred years." As readers of the previous book will anticipate, Miss Bindergarten works every bit as hard as her students: she pins 100 bows to her dress, makes a paper snake with 100 colorful scales and puts together a roomful of related activities. Once again, Wolff's sturdy, genially observed illustrations prove a perfect match for Slate's rhyming text, and together they build momentum to the big event--a party that's certain to inspire similar festivities in kindergartens everywhere. Ages 3-6.
