TBTB (Throwback Thursday Books) – Judith Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day



 My first experience with Judith Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day must have been auditory. I can recall the words so much better than the images. Yet, I have often alluded to this picture book when I’m having a lousy time of it.

With the film out in theaters, I remembered the elementary school librarian reading this book to us.  Also, I recalled a substitute teacher playing the audiotape for us. How old school is that?
