Jessica was a student who often worried. She worried about the basic day-to-day things so when she was asked to bring in one hundred of "something" for the hundredth day of school she worried. As the days got closer and closer her peers began bringing in objects, but she couldn't quite think of what it was exactly that she would bring. The day before her supplies were due she worried so much that her family began to bring her objects in groups of ten. The next day she brought nine groups of ten objects to school realizing that she only had 90 total things. But in no time she realized her mom wrote her a note with ten "x"s a.k.a. kisses and so she finished off her collection with the last group of ten. Her teacher and classmates were amazed by her creativity and Jessica was no longer worried. This is a realistic fiction children's book. ( )

This third-person picture book details a short story about a girl named Jessica who is a true worrywart, especially when her teacher assigns the class to bring in 100 items to celebrate the 100th day of school. After seeing all of the paperclips and peanuts that came in throughout the week, Jessica struggled to come up with something of her own to share. By the 100th day, Jessica brings in a unique, memorable, and loving collection of items thanks to her family. I really liked this book and its colorful and funny water-color illustrations. I think it’s neat how the story teaches kids about math in the process through the illustrations and dialogue as Jessica counts out all 100 of her items. For example, she brought in 10 screws from her dad’s toolbox and Jessica counted, “four big, four small, one giant, and one tiny,” (8) which are also illustrated. This book also shows the creativity Jessica has under pressure as she brings in “100 bits of love,” said by her teacher. Overall, the message of this entertaining picture book is to not fret over the little things in life, because things will turn out just fine. ( )

A book to prepare students for the 100th day of school, or as a celebration of the 100th day of school.

"100th Day Worries" is a short illustrated story about a young girl named Jessica who is assigned to bring in 100 items to class for 100th Day. Jessica becomes stressed out seeing the other kid's collections and cannot think of one of her own. Thankfully, her family steps in and helps her create a collection unique and full of love.

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Genre Critique: This story is an exceptional example of realistic fiction because it really plays into experiences that children get at a young age in elementary schools across the nation. Counting up to the 100th day of school is a very commonly practiced event that elementary teacher's do and the way that Jessica worries and tries to find a solution to her problem is very relatable for many students.

Character Critique: I thought that Jessica was definitely the protagonist and a very good character to follow because she was definitely someone that students could find relate to. The way that the author allowed her to resolve the conflict by the end of the story carried well with the plot and really made her dynamic characteristics stand out.
