While I was reading this book to my 5 year old little girl, I sensed she was curious about the story. From the cover itself, she knows that the character is not in a good mood.

Later, I asked her if she ever had a bad day like Alexander. She said to me: "I never had a bad day. I have good luck."

I thought about her best friend in school, Alex, and what would my daughter feel if she's not Alex's first best friend anymore. She said, "It's ok, I'm still her friend naman."

I guess that's my Little Miss Sunshine right there.

Though she wasn't able to empathize with the character, I liked the message of the book to the readers. Sometimes, and only sometimes, it's normal to be grumpy and cranky when things don't go the way you want to. Because some days are like that. After acknowledging such, one should focus more on staying positive and look forward to a better day tomorrow.
