I’m so glad you’re back for Day 7 of the 365 Days of Children’s Books series!
I’m sharing a favorite book of ours each day for 365 days (hopefully in a row!). So bookmark this series for some fresh reading ideas!
I am not sure that you could have a list of most beloved children’s books and not have a book about Alexander. He has added a lot of humor to our reading time throughout the years!

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Author: Judith Viorst
As you can guess from the title, Alexander is not having a great day by any stretch of the imagination.
He gets gum in his hair, he didn’t have a toy in his breakfast cereal box, and there were lima beans for dinner.
My children and I find the tone of this book to be hilarious! Everyone has the occasional bad day, and this is a great reminder that even 5 year old’s do too!
Alexander is so fun to read because he is just a fabulously relatable kid. Whether young or old, we all have those days where a million seemingly innocent things go wrong, yet all of them combined equal a horrendous day!
Pull this book out any time, but especially on those days someone has a case of the grumps and a bit of comic relief is needed.
