First Sentence
I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Read the first page

I bought this book initially because I remember loving it as a child. Now I use it in my classroom. It can be used to talk about cause and effect writing teaching students there will always be an effect to our actions. It can be used to discuss the negative attitude Alexander has, and how he could have improved his day. It can be used to let students know that sometimes you will have a bad day. As the last sentence says "Mom says some days are like that".

And Judith Viorst has created one of them. I didn't know who the author was until just today but Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day has been my all time favorite book since I can remember. Of course to all my adult friends, I would rather die than admit it. Even today, when I am having just one of those awful days, I tell people I am having an "Alexander" day. I think it also developed my love for poetry.
You hear all the time how it is important for kids to read, but it is just a cliche, it has lost all meaning. It is when you stop and think about authors like Judith Viorst or Dr. Seuss and how I know for myself it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have such a deep love for the written word and its magic it brings that you see its true value. Alexander is a classic, just as much as Moby Dick or Oliver Twist and everyone with a sense of whimsy (and especially those without it) need to read it.
I was reading another book Mrs. Viorst wrote and when I found out she wrote my beloved Alexander book, my face lit up. That's the power of Alexander, he makes 33 year old women's faces light up as they recall his tale of plight. (And a note to Alexander: I talked to my cousins in Australia, and your mother was right, they do have those kind of days there too. LOL)

It was a fun read. My toddler loved it and wanted me to read it to her again and again.

I think kids will relate to this unfortunate little boy who truly has a bad day. I know my grandson enjoys it, he's 3.5 years. Quick read. A bit disappointed that the pages have no colour. I took pencil crayons and coloured in Alexander on every page so it had a bit of life.

Hilarious book, loved it as a kid and now I read it to my sons. Alexander has a rough day. Some if it's bad luck, some of it's his fault. Great illustrations (no color) story is infused with fun humor.

This has been my favourite book since reading it to my children in1960s.........I still use the "I think I'll go to Australia" as
an expression of frustration.

My mom used to read me this book all of the time when I was little. Now, I use it as a way to cheer up my "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days." I have to smile, and then things aren't really so very bad after all. I would say this is a book that should be included in every personal library, no matter what your age.

I used to read this book ALL the time as a kid. I came across it here and had to get it for my 3 yr old. She likes the book and asks me to read it to her often and Mom has no problem obliging with this one!
