Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a much loved classic for good reason. As the name implies, Alexander is having a bad day. A horribly terrible day. Some days are like that. Judith Viorst wrote a story we can all relate to. The illustrations by Ray Cruz take us through Alexander’s day as thing after thing goes wrong. But no matter how bad today is, tomorrow is a new day. That’s the magic of this book and the reason why I have liked it since I was a child. Do you remember reading this book as a child?
