To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It is a great book , not only for children but parents too. It provides a great insight of child psychology, particularly for a single child. Sketching are great. Children can enjoy this book with their parents.
There is not much I can say about this classic American children's book that has not already been said many, many times.
I first encountered Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day many years ago in Library School. While I was in the main office trying to fix some mistakes in my registration for the next term's classes, my pencil broke, the hem of my coat unravelled, and I dropped my books. Mae Benne, a beloved and much-respected figure in children's literature, stepped out of her office and handed me a copy of this book. It helped! The book is charmingly written and it is easy for anyone who has ever had a bad day to feel better after reading it.
Since then I have not only read this wonderful book to my own children, but I have kept a copy at hand in the various training programs where I have worked to cheer trainees who are having a bad day. I bought two copies of the book last month while I was visiting family in the UK, one to give my little granddaughter, and one to give to her school. My granddaughter loves it as much as I do, although she needed to know for example, that "sneakers" are trainers.
This book is so good, I bought another one! The first was for my grand daughter, even though it is about a boy my grand daughter is having problems with some nasty girls at school intimidating her. She will love this book when she gets it at Christmas and we will be able to talk things through with her. I would count this as a classic book!
