Jake’s 100th Day of School
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. Jake’s friend Henry brings 100 bottle caps and Emily brings 100 paper clips. But Jake forgets the 100 family pictures he has glued into a special memory book at home. Disaster!
The problem is solved thanks to Jake’s ingenuity and the sensitivity of his wonderful principal, Mrs. Wadsworth. He 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 well-crafted story shows schools in their best light and Judy Love’s charming illustrations brightly capture the excitement of a busy school day.
