The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes is about a third grade reading level. Even though the story was written many years ago, the author's message is still relevant with today's classrooms. This book companion contains comprehension questions and a vocabulary matching activity for each chapter of the book.
Book Summary: Wanda Petronski is a Polish girl in a Connecticut school who is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she doesn’t and bullies her mercilessly. The class feels terrible when Wanda is pulled out of the school, but by that time it’s too late for apologies. Maddie, one of Wanda’s classmates, ultimately decides that she is "never going to stand by and say nothing again."
