"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" by Judith Viorst


"Alexander is not having a great day. He has to endure gum in his hair, sitting in the middle of the backseat, third-best-friend status, no dessert at lunch, lima beans, railroad pajamas, and kissing on TV — all in one day! Maybe he’ll just move to Australia."


*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
