Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of KindergartenBook - 1998
Miss Bindergarten, that beguiling teacher with a tail who made getting ready for the first day of kindergarten so much fun, returns for another milestone. Tomorrow she and her students will have been together for 100 days. To celebrate, each student must bring ?100 of some wonderful, one-hundred-full thing!? Popsicle sticks, paper-chain links, stickers, a drawing, a design, a string of beads'that night the students get busy finishing up their projects. Meanwhile, Miss Bindergarten gets ready, too, buying ingredients for 100-day punch (made with 100 cherries), folding paper hats (that mark off 100 days on their brim), and piling up blocks to make the number 100.The clever text moves briskly in rhyme (with alphabetical order tucked in); the celebration is joyous; counting and early math concepts abound; and everyone's one-hundred-full efforts are recapped in a notebook Miss Bindergarten puts together on the last pages. Children will surely revel in the pictures, which are filled with the love that Miss Bindergarten pours into her classroom and students, and the pride and pleasure that they take in their own work and in one another. This is a book that will both satisfy and motivate on many levels.
