Book Review:

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is the story of a young boy as he encounters what he feels is the worst day of his life. It follows him at home, at school, and even at the dentist as bad things happen and he tries to deal with it. This story would be great for teaching children about problems and about how to react to them appropriately. This book does not have a ton of diversity, but it is still considered a book of high enough quality to use in a classroom.
