Booklist Review

Ages 3^-5. Expressing one number in a variety of ways is an excellent exercise for small children beginning to understand the nonlinear nature of math. In this book, Harris uses familiar objects--pennies, bees, toes, blackberries--to demonstrate this concept in an enjoyable way. If, for instance, "you pick seventy-five blackberries and your Mom picks twenty-five more, what do you get? 100 berries and (Oh, my) blackberry pie." Each way of making 100 is shown with a similarly fun rhyme and an extra fillip. The illustrations are decorative and cheerful, though the racially diverse children in the pictures appear rather stiff, with many having strikingly similar facial expressions. Useful as an adjunct to classroom math lessons. --Tim Arnold


Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-A clever way to teach children the many ways they can get to 100. Teachers will appreciate the questioning rhymes that illustrate how to count in groups of 1, 5, 10, or 20. "If 20 children each drop 5 papers on the floor, what do you get? 100 papers. And...(I would guess) an awful mess." The pictures feature a multiethnic classroom filled with smiling faces, lots of action, and vibrant color. Some of the illustrations allow children to actually count out the corresponding objects on the page, such as 100 toes or 100 legs on a centipede. The numbers 1 to 100 are printed on the endpapers in colorful blocks, with the objects from the rhymes interspersed throughout. A solid title to read aloud on the 100th day of school-or any other day.-Lisa Gangemi Krapp, Rockville Centre Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
