Pretty soon, I’ll be asking readers the same question regarding the month of October. For the October edition, I’ll need those by Friday, 24 October!
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?
