Celebrate the 100th Day of School with this kid—and teacher—favorite from award-winning author Lester Laminack!
Jake and his fellow students are getting ready for a celebration. Tomorrow is the 100th day of school and everyone is going to share their collections of 100 things. The day of the celebration arrives, but Jake forgets the 100 family pictures he has glued into a special memory book at home. Disaster!
But thanks to Jake's ingenuity and the sensitivity of his principal, Jake does have a collection to display that day... and something special to share with the class on the 101st day of school.
Lester Laminack's charming, relatable story shines a light on this milestone day celebrated by schools everywhere. Judy Love's joyful illustrations capture the excitement of Jake's diverse school community.
