Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the grand tradition of andldquo;Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittensandrdquo; comes an uplifting tribute to 100 everyday things worth celebrating. The list, in rhyming couplets, draws directly from a preschoolandshy;erandrsquo;s worldandmdash;from slippery floors to dinosaurs, from goldfish to a birthday wish. Amy Schwartz weaves a masterful balance between art and text, with each of the 100 items portrayed as its own well-observed and warmly detailed vignette. While the contents provide readers with a frame of reference for the quantity of andldquo;100andrdquo;andmdash;a celebratory milestone in preschools and early elementary gradesandmdash;the oversized pages envelop young children in the wonderful things surrounding them.
