Have you ever had a terrible day where you thought that things just couldn’t get any worse? That was the kind of day that Alexander was having. It was so bad that he was ready to move to Australia. Children and adults alike will be able to identify with Alexander’s bad day.

This is the kind of book that most kids can connect with and is a great one for springboard activities.

Other connection ideas:
• Alexander ended up with gum in his hair. Without getting gum in your hair and getting permission, chew some bubble gum and see how big you can make your bubble.

Movement:
Art: Alexander drew an invisible picture of a castle. Using lemon juice and a q-tip, paint your own invisible picture. Once it dries, have an adult carefully iron the paper and the juice will turn brown leaving your picture.

Cooking: Alexander doesn’t like lima beans. What food do you not like? With a parent, cook something you DO like!
