Wanda 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. It’s not until Wanda fails to come to school one day that her classmates learn the truth about the hundred dresses as well as the meaning of kindness and generosity of spirit.

Integrated Literature & Writing Discovery Guides
Level 1 study guides are recommended for a range of primary (grades 2 and 3) students who have acquired the foundational skills to independently read and respond to a simple piece of literature. Each guide is designed to be completed in five weeks, which allows students to comfortably work through six units in a typical school year.
Not sure what level to choose? View our placement guidelines here.
Each week for four weeks, students will:
- Learn to take notes on characters, settings, and plot
- Study vocabulary
- Answer comprehension questions
- Write a short personal response
- Have opportunity to discuss topics related to the story
On the fifth week students are given a selection of hands-on projects to complete.
