    Burned in my brain forever First, because of the wonderful list of descriptors in the title, repeated throughout the story I must have hit it at the right time in language development, because it stuck in my mind I think I used that phrase terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, for a couple of decades, usually in jest or as a way of mocking my drama Second, because it was the first library book I ever lost I m pretty sure I was freaked out, but I remember the librarians as being nicely firm about it Yet it remains a guilty scar.

    Who hasn t had this sort of a day For Alexander, it starts out bad and just gets worse and worse.A great book to share with a kid who gets frustrated when everything seems to go wrong for me I love the illustrations in this, the simple situations gone bad, and Alexander s very real reactions to them.

    2 Bad Day s It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day I read this to my little niece the other day, let s just say we weren t very impressed by this book I get the meaning behind it and it s true sometimes you just have a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Days where one thing after another go wrong and it puts you in a terrible mood but still, I didn t like the overall negative feeling of this book Really Alexander just came across as a little brat and was a bit annoying at times I certainly won t be reading this one again and It s not one I ll be recommending either It s just not for us Some days are like that Even in Australia

    I bought this book in 1989 Well, my parents bought it for me There s a half peeled off sticker that says, MY BOOK in red bubble block lettering with Philip scrawled on the name line I was in first grade.I loved this book as a kid.I read it tonight to my daughters for the first time I m pretty sure they didn t understand the message that everybody has bad days, no matter where you are, but it was fun reading to them all tucked in and what not.It was a nice piece of nostalgia for me, as well as making me picture myself as an adult and a kid at the same time I wish I found a Junior Undercover Agent code ring in my breakfast cereal this morning, but I didn t I didn t either, Alexander Granted, I did have coffee cake One of the perks of growing up I guess.

    I thought this book was an appropriate book to read Alexander is having a horrible day He wakes up out of sorts and the day is one big horror show I think what I like most about this story is the end The mother comes in and she doesn t try to make it better or make light of it She says, some days are like that Basically this is life and it s ok This is part of the human experience That is the best part to me I was sick yesterday, which is why I didn t post I pretty much slept the entire day I feel like I m back in the land of the living today It was a rough day.The artwork is black and white drawings, nothing fancy The kids related to this story instantly Both of them were relating stories of bad days They both gave the book 4 stars.

    One of the all time classics I loved this one as a kid, and I love it all the as a grown up reading it to my boys.I m dimly aware they made a movie based on the book, though I have no idea why If you watched the movie and haven t read this book, I fear you re done yourself a great injustice Please consider picking up the book It s well worth your time.

    Some days are like that Even in Australia This is one of those books that has so many levels like a parfait, or an onion It begs for multiple readings On one level it is the story of Alexander, an ordinary kid whose day doesn t go as he wants it to Yet it is also a treatise on the human condition our selfishness and self centeredness, the travails and hardships that assail each person s life, and the resolute courage needed to stand our ground and live our lives where we find ourselves, one day at a time Even on the days we d rather move to Australia.
