$5.47

Wanda wears the same faded blue dress to school every day – yet she says she has one hundred beautiful dresses at home, “all lined up.” The other girls don’t believe it, and when Peggy starts a daily game of teasing Wanda about the hundred dresses, everyone joins in. Maddie, Peggy’s best friend, goes along with the game, but she secretly wonders whether she can find the courage to speak up in Wanda’s defense.
       It’s not until Wanda fails to come to school one day that her classmates learn the truth about the hundred dresses – and Maddie and Peggy learn the meaning of kindness and generosity of spirit.
       Eleanor Este’s heartfelt story, a Newbery Honor Book and a beloved classic for more than sixty years, offers readers of all ages a timeless message of compassion and understanding. 81 pages
