The Hundred Dresses

By Eleanor Estes
Level 5

This Newbery Honor Book has been a beloved classic for more than 70 years. The book is 80 pages long with big print and pictures on most pages. In this touching story, readers learn about the damage caused by prejudice, racism, and teasing as the book illustrates the meaning of being understanding, standing up for what is right, and showing kindness. Readers also gain knowledge about school and daily life in the 1940s. This would be a great book to do as a read-aloud or to discuss with your children after reading.
