Summary: Jessica worries about everything. When her teacher gives her an assignment to bring in a collection of 100 things for the 100th day of school, Jessica has a difficult time decided on what she should take. Finally, the 100th day rolls around and Jessica stills has made up her mind about her collection. Her family rushes around giving her odd things like ribbons, rocks, barrettes, screws, beads, erasers, buttons, pennies, and nickles. When Jessica gets to school, she worries even more because her odds-and-ends only add up to ninety items. Jessica adds ten "kisses"that her mom left on a note. Jessica's collection is complete; it's 100 bits of love from her family.

Uses: read-aloud on the 100th day of school, independent reading for early readers, recommend for students who like to count using patterns or for students who have collections of their own

Social issues: anxiety in children

Other: point out the different ways children are counting to 100 (by ten, twenty, and twenty-five)
