We are pleased to announce our July children's title for the Featured Book of the Month program!

The Hundred Dresses
by Eleanor Estes

Wanda Petronski wore the same faded-blue dress to school every day.  It was always clean but looked as though it had never been ironed properly.  One day when a classmate showed up wearing a bright new dress that was much admired, Wanda said suddenly, "I have a hundred dresses at home."  That had started the teasing game of dresses, which Peggy and Maddie had played with Wanda.  It was fun to stop Wanda on the way to school and ask, "How many dresses did you say you had?"  Wanda did have the hundred dresses, and this is the story of how Peggy and Maddie came to understand about them and what the game meant to Wanda.
