Poor Alexander! His teacher doesn’t like Alexander’s picture of an invisible castle. His mother forgets to pack him dessert. The dentist finds a cavity in his tooth. He falls down in the mud and doesn’t get the blue shoes he wants and he has to have lima beans for dinner and there was kissing on TV. What if he moved to Australia? But the truth is, everybody has bad days like Alexander’s. Even in Australia.

  Sometimes I Have Bad Days Like This
Katy H (age 6) of Florida, 6/23/2016
I liked when Alexander said, "If I don't get sit near a window, I'm going to be carsick," but no one listened to him. Later his brother pushed him in the mud, and then his other brother was calling him a crybaby for being pushed in the mud. Sometimes my older brothers are mean to me, just like Alexander's older brothers were mean to him.
