My kids & I are big fans of the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. I remember reading this many times to my son when he was little and will be enjoying it again with my two girls. It's perfect for those bad days when you need some cheering up!
We are eagerly anticipating the Disney movie based upon the book in theaters Oct 10th. It stars Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner (remember The Odd Life of Timothy Green? I had the opportunity to attend a Q& A with Jennifer Garner via webcam; she's one of my favorite actresses!) and looks like it will be a great film for the whole family to enjoy together.
About the movie:
Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”
follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck
in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom(Jennifer Garner), dad(Steve Carell),brother(Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one.
Here are some fun Activity Sheets for your kids to go along with the movie:
