The Three Little Pigs Count to 100 by Grace Maccarone

the three little pigs

The well-known fable of the Three Little Pigs gets a makeover in this efficient counting guide for beginning readers. The first little pig uses 5 bundles of straw to build a house in the shape of a cylinder, but the wolf blows it down. Using 6 big sticks and sheets to build a cone-shaped house, the second little pig is also unsuccessful at keeping the wolf at bay. Finally, the third little pig smartly gathers 100 strong bricks to build a cube-shaped house. Guess which piggy’s house finally withstands the big bad wolf’s blows?

My Review:
What could be better than combining the Three Little Pigs with the 100th Day of School? My students really enjoy the story of the Three Little Pigs I think we have read almost every version that there is. When I saw that there was a story that revolved around counting to 100, I knew I had to get it! It is a perfect combination of shapes, numbers, and fairy tales. I loved that the pigs made their houses into the shapes of a cylinder, a triangle, and a cube. It allowed me to discuss the concept of 3D shapes with my students. I loved that the pigs meet up with several other fairytale characters like Little Bo Peep, Humpty Dumpty, and the Gingerbread Man. Finally, The way the author groups numbers to reach one hundred is well done. The illustrations are fun and engaging. I highly recommend this story for any 100th Day of School.

Back of Book:
How many ways are there to count to 100? Lots! The funny rhymes in this book will show you some different ways to count to 100 using a clown’s nose, piggy toes, and other groups of things. It all adds up to a fun way to learn about 100!
My Review:
This is one of my favorite books to read aloud to my class for the 100th Day of school. It is geared towards preschool and Kindergarten ages and makes counting  fun. The rhyming text is simple and shows readers several examples of items that are in sets of 100. I especially loved that the text teaches readers how to add and to group numbers. Each page has a different equation on it. The illustrations are very colorful and engaging. The front of the book has a note for parents on how important counting with their children can be. A perfect story for the classroom or at home.

The 100th Day of school is such a fun thing to celebrate. My Kindergarten class loved counting up to the 100th Day. I loved finding a picture book that was specifically written for Kindergarten. The book follows the class as they all prepare 100 items for the 100th Day. I loved that the illustrations show Miss Bindergarten preparing her class for the big day. The students are drawn in a fun and friendly way. Everything about this book is perfect for a reader’s first time celebrating the 100th Day of School.

Back of Book:

Star Log: Day 100. Base camp is lively. I greet my crewmates and admire their work. We have mastered many skills on our journey, but today brings a new milestone. There have been: 100 roll calls. 100 songs. 100 pledges. 100 challenging days full of exploration and triumph!

My Review.

I have been teaching Kindergarten for two years now and I truly believe that my students get more excited about the 100th day of school then Christmas. I had 16 boys this this year so I spent time making sure that I found fun boy books to share with my class. When I found Planet Kindergarten I knew my boys would adore it.  It is a fun story that lists all fun things that a Kindergarten class learns in the first 100 days. From safety and pledges, songs, and everything in between. This is a fun, quick read to help celebrate the 100th Day of school.

MY REVIEW:  The 100th Day of school is a big deal in Kindergarten, okay its actuality a HUGE deal. My students were super excited on the day before our 100th day celebration.  I brought out this book they loved it! Its follows a boy as he tries to decide what 100 items he should bring for the 100th day party in his class.  He goes over several possible items before finally deciding on his ant farm. This causes a fun and crazy part of the story that will make any child laugh. Great read aloud story.
