Description
In the grand tradition of Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens comes an uplifting tribute to 100 everyday things worth celebrating. The list, in rhyming couplets, draws directly from a preschooler's world 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 100 a celebratory milestone in preschools and early elementary grades the oversized pages envelop young children in the wonderful things surrounding them.
