Miss Mingo and her kindergarten class of animals are back, this time celebrating both the 100th day of school and one another’s amazing capabilities. . .Harper’s cartoon illustrations highlight the class’s enthusiasm and emotions. Though many pages group items to facilitate counting, not every 100 is countable: Centipede’s legs aren’t all in the frame, and Pelican’s project is the fact that this bird dives “into the ocean from 100 feet in the air.” The 100th day of school has never looked this diverse.
A cheery class of seafaring, airborne, and land creatures celebrates the 100th day of school with a fun project designed to entertain and educate the reader. . . The author’s whimsical artistry of the various animals is fun and friendly, and the pastel colors throughout the book give the characters and their classroom a cheerful look and feel. . . A lovely book as a read-aloud or for independent enjoyment.
