Two of the best children’s books, and total opposites. These classics are not just for children and they’re on my bookshelf. When there’s a terrible day, tomorrow will be better. Thank you, Jean!
It has been a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day! Mine is a very old copy now. I need to dig it out of storage to read to #1 Grandson. Of late he’s into chapter books. Who’s fault is that? Uh, er..cough, cough…Jennie! 😜😀 Thank you for the nudge!!
We just finished a Bernstein Bear chapter book…The Galloping Ghost, and he has me reading to him The Hobbit! His choice!! He can’t wait until Bilbo meets Gollum. Today we passed the Little Free Library Box that only has children’s books where we donated the Bernstein Bear chapter book, and he picked a new chapter book for me to read.
Summer reading is going well here I’m happy to say, but my voice is scratchy and hoarse from all this reading. ☺
I haven’t ever read Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse. I’ll look for that one in the library.
I love your stories, Deborah! Reading about your grandson and the two of you reading together makes my day. He will laugh his head off at Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. You will, too, as you haven’t read it in ages. The Hobbit? Wow! He might also like The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I think Little Free Libraries are the greatest idea. Many, many thanks for your kind words. 😊
That’s a good book too! I think I already own it. Will look for that along with my copy of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
Love both of these books, and so did my students!
Wonderful! Thanks, Becky.
Always good to get more reading recommendations for our grandson. Thanks to you and Jean for the introductions.
Best wishes, Pete.
A pleasure, Pete.
There are so many good children’s books. I wrote a series of biological ones which featured the real stories of various insects. I was looking for an illustrator but I never got round to completing them. I never found that illustrator. They are sitting around somewhere.
Never give up, Opher.
I enjoy reading to my five-year-old granddaughter and these two books would be great.
They’re a good pick, Cindy. 🙂
Somehow, I knew Alexander would make this list! Ford loved this book!!
A winner for sure. I miss you!
I use both of those books in my classroom A LOT!
Always! We live in hope of better days, even when they aren’t terrible, horrible, no good or very bad.
Thank you, Jennie. 🙂
You’re welcome, Norah. 🙂
