One of my passions is children’s literature. Being a teacher, I have a vast library of books that I love to read to my students and my own children. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a staple here during bed time at The Money Pit. There are five other books in Judith Viorst’s Alexander series, but this is my favorite.
It’s no wonder that my children can recite the thing. If YOU are at all familiar with this book, you will notice our dialog came straight from the pages:
Frick cried and cried after I walked out of his room during nap time. I took care of some chores and checked on him again. His crying had not subsided. I open the door and sat next to him.
Frick: (while sobbing) I am having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! I think I’ll move to Australia!
Me: Some days are like that.
Frick: (smiling) Even in Australia.
