100 School Days
is another in Anne and Lizzy Rockwell's delightful series of picture books about Mrs. Madoff's class. From the first day, the children begin to count each day of school by putting a penny in a jar. Every 10 days, a child brings in something to share: 10 balloons on day 10, 20 Matchbox cars on day 20, until day 100 when everyone brings in "100 of something good to eat" and the 100 pennies are shared with those in need.
Anne Rockwell has written, and Lizzy Rockwell has illustrated, a number of children's picture books about special days in Mrs. Madoff's class. The books by the mother and daughter team include: Father's Day, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Halloween Day, Thanksgiving Day, Career Day, and Show & Tell Day. I recommend their picture books for four- to eight-year-olds. (HarperCollins, 2002. ISBN: 9780064437271)
