Freddy's mother sews a button on his pants so he can wear an outfit identical to his friend Robbie's for Twin Day at school. Once Freddy arrives, Mrs. Wushy tells her students they will need to bring 100 of something to celebrate the hundredth day of school. Freddy's family tries to help him decide what to bring, but Freddy grows discouraged. Their suggestions seem boring until his father suggests shark teeth, but their shark jaw only has 98 of them. His classmates have already chosen what they will bring: rocks, glass animals, baseball cards and other things. Freddy's sister, Suzie, suggests he bring 100 homemade, chocolate chip cookies. Freddy loves the idea. His mother and sister help him make the cookies, but after work his father eats one before he knows that they are meant for Freddy's class. Freddy goes to his room to cry. Although he does not want his family to enter, they do and tell him about another possibility: buttons. His grandmother had a button collection, and most of the buttons have a history. One was from a military uniform and another from a wedding dress. Freddy's class enjoys the stories behind the buttons, and he shares the remaining cookies with them. This makes Freddy happy.
