Boy, am I glad I’m not the only one who has days like this. Poor Alexander starts his day by waking up with gum in his hair, trips on the skateboard and drops his sweater in the sink while the water is running. From that point on, he knows that it is going to be a “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”
Yes, Alexander does end up having a “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.” At home, at school, at the shoe store, and even at his dad’s office, things just don’t go well for little Alexander. He thinks that things just might be different if he lived in Australia. However, despite all, he learns that everybody has days like this sometimes, even in Australia.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a great story for teaching children (and adults) that everybody, no matter how old they are or where they live, have really bad days sometimes. Things just happen.
Tiny Tidbits: In 1998, this story was turned into a musical production, which has been performed all over the country. The book’s author, Viorst, also wrote the music and lyrics for the production. (Resource: Wikipedia)
