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.

This story lists and illustrates 100 things that can make kids happy such as submarines, jellybeans, white snow and cookie dough. There is no story, just a couple of words with each colorful illustration.

This book is advertized for ages 3-6. This is an excellent age range for this story. The book is a little long for the littlest ones, but it can certainly be read in more than one sitting. This book would be great for several things; Celebrating 100th day, a conversation starter before making your own lists of what makes you happy, or an early reader book (due to the simple text that is highly illustrated).

This book promotes a positive outlook which gets it a five stars in my perspective!
