This book is far from terrible!

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Ray Cruz, Judith Viorst

As a student I feel like this book can be relatable. Some of the events that Alexander is faced with, may be some of the same things that the students face. Everyone has a bad day every now and again. An activity that could be used would be getting the students to sequence the events in the story, or to write about a time that they had a bad day and how they felt, and then write about how they overcame that bad day.
