What's the story?

On the ninety-ninth day of kindergarten, Miss Bindergarten tells her twenty-six students to bring "one-hundred-full things" to class on the following day. That night, while students finish their projects, Miss Bindergarten completes her own surprises for the students. Lively illustrations of a festive kindergarten tradition make this a winning choice for your preschooler or kindergartner.


Is it any good?

The cleverly written story lets readers glimpse the parallel worlds of students and teachers. Children will delight in reading how the animal students tackle their homework assignment -- to create a project using 100 of something. Miss Bindergarten is busy, too, making wonderful math projects to surprise her students. Her energy seems boundless as she awaits her students' arrival.

Children will adore the characters and delight in examining the detailed illustrations. The art is rich in visual clues, encouraging discussion of the students' projects and Miss Bindergarten's classroom activities. The students' sense of achievement and pride contributes to the day's success. Children think it's simply a party, but parents applaud that clever Miss Bindergarten.
