The first-grade teacher wants each student to collect 100 small things in honor of the 100th Day of school, which starts one girl worrying. "This is a knowing and funny book that succeeds without patronizing its fretful heroine or sentimentalizing the supportive response of her family," PW wrote. Ages 5-8. (Jan.)
