The perennially popular tale of Alexander’s worst day is a storybook that belongs on every child’s bookshelf.
Alexander knew it was going to be a terrible day when he woke up with gum in this hair.
And it got worse…
His best friend deserted him. There was no dessert in his lunch bag. And, on top of all that, there were lima beans for dinner and kissing on TV!
This handsome new edition of Judith Viorst’s classic picture book is sure to charm readers of all ages.
“I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”
So begin the trials and tribulations of the irascible Alexander, who has been earning the sympathy of readers since 1972. People of all ages have terrible, horrible days, and Alexander offers us the cranky commiseration we crave as well as a reminder that things may not be all that bad. As Alexander’s day progresses, he faces a barrage of bummers worthy of a country- western song: getting smushed in the middle seat of the car, a dessertless lunch sack, a cavity at the dentist’s office, stripeless sneakers, witnessing kissing on television, and being forced to sleep in railroad-train pajamas. He resolves several times to move to Australia.
Judith Viorst flawlessly and humorously captures a child’s testy temperament, rendering Alexander sympathetic rather than whiny. Our hero’s gum-styled hair and peevish countenance are artfully depicted by Ray Cruz’s illustrations. An ALA Notable Book, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a great antidote to bad days everywhere, sure to put a smile on even the crabbiest of faces. (Ages 5 to 9)

Have you heard of the term “affiliate marketing”? If you are just a little bit familiar with the Internet, you have probably chanced upon this term from your hours of surfing the net. Basically, affiliate marketing is when you set up a site of your own and sell products by other Internet marketers while you earn a commission for each product you’ve managed to sell from your site. That’s the simple explanation anyway. It all gets much more complicated than that, but not too complicated that you can’t do it yourself.
Internet marketing has been such a burgeoning industry that there are literally thousands of people today who are into it. Granted not all go on to be rich and famous, but most are enjoying some sort of success through it. So what are the benefits of working from home?
Firstly, you need not have to leave the house to start earning. This means, the moment you wake up, you can spend a few hours tending to your sites in your underwear then spend the rest of your day doing what you want. This is such a great idea, in that you can even go and travel to anywhere in the world as long as there’s an internet connection, and go about your day in style! This also means that all the stresses of office work, the commute, traffic, smog and what have you are all but eliminated, unless you choose it to of course.
But perhaps the best reason why affiliate marketing is so great, is that you have the potential to earn ten times, or more, than your paycheck with your regular job. Of course becoming a success in this endeavor requires you to focus on your site as well as grit and determination. Remember, you reap what you sow and when it comes to internet marketing, this applies perfectly. But, and this is a big but, if you do it well, pretty soon you might find yourself lounging around for weeks at a time without touching your computer and still earn big bucks! You can say that it’s a self sufficient money making machine. So try it out why don’t you?
