Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday Literature Unit

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

From the moment Alexander woke up, he knew he was going to have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Things just got worse as he went through his day. He had problems with his friends at school, the dentist found that Alexander had a cavity, he got in trouble with his parents for various reasons, and the store was out of the new shoes he wanted. From the time he woke up to the time he went to bed, nothing seemed to go right for Alexander. He decided he should probably just move to Australia. Then his mom explained that everyone has bad days…even in Australia.

Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday

Alexander's grandparents came to visit and gave him a dollar. He thought he was rich. Although he was encouraged to save his dollar, Alexander has trouble saving money. The temptation to spend is so great, he cannot resist. Alexander buys some chewing gum, makes losing bets with his brothers, and spends his money on useless things at a yard sale, among other things. Soon his money is gone.

Alexander tries to think of ways to earn more money. He hopes he might lose a tooth, but he has no loose teeth. He looks in phone booths for change, but has no luck. Soon, Alexander is discouraged. He has spent his dollar and is left with only a one-eyed teddy bear, an incomplete deck of cards, a half-melted candle, and some bus tokens.
