A poster on the back of the book jacket features all 100 things as a collectible keepsake.
**STARRED REVIEW**Publishers Weekly —
"The tightly rendered illustrations, which usually appear in twos or three against white backgrounds, have a refreshing emotional reticence; the kids' happiness is shown as matter-of-fact and grounded rather than euphoric or manic. And then there are the descriptions themselves, eloquent in their unfussiness...Schwartz isn't the first to try a compendium of this sort, but she sets a new benchmark."
**STARRED REVIEW**Kirkus Reviews —
"It is a book chock-full of fun—what more could one want?"
"It’s all very, very sweet, but with the occasional offbeat example that will satisfy out-of-the-box thinkers."The Horn Book Magazine —
**STARRED REVIEW**School Library Journal —
"A fun, engaging read."
"Schwartz’s distinctive pictures in brilliant colors would make anyone happy...a magical romp through the senses and delights of being human."Booklist —
