The Hundred Dresses - Eleanor Estes,Louis Slobodkin

     The main character, Wanda Petronski, is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same dress everyday. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but no one believes her. Ultimately, Wanda is pulled out of class and the students feel terrible. Students will love this heartfelt story and it will open discussion about bullying.

     This book is targeted at more mature readers leveled at ages 6-9. A great way to use this book in your classroom is to let students describe characters from the story using character traits. Your students can also use compare and contrast with two different characters from the story.

The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes & Louis Slobodkin (Artwork)

Child me and adult me agree, this is a wonderful book. It holds up with time and I really love it. The artwork by Louis Slobodkin is beautiful. There is a powerful message of forgiveness in this story. It is also a story that might help young and old alike to learn to accept each others differences. It is a quick paced book, with a lovely writing style.




This is a nostalgic read, so here is what I believe I would have rated this as a child and what I rate it now as an adult.


Child me: 5 stars
Adult me: 5 stars
