Biografía breve
Judith Viorst (born February 2, 1931) is an American author, newspaper journalist, and psychoanalysis researcher. She is perhaps best known for her children's literature, such as The Tenth Good Thing About Barney (about the death of a pet) and the Alexander series of short books.

In the latter part of the 1970s, after two decades of writing for children and adults, Viorst turned to the study of Freudian psychology. After six years of study at Washington Psychoanalytic Institute, in 1981 she became a research graduate affiliated with the institute.
Judith Viorst lives in Washington, DC, with her husband, political writer Milton Viorst. They have three grown sons: Anthony Jacob Viorst, an attorney practicing in the Denver, Colorado area; Nicholas Nathan "Nick" Viorst, an Assistant District Attorney for New York County, and Alexander Noah Viorst.



A super hilarious book, we follow Alexander and this awful day as it unfolds Infront of him. On this particular day, nothing can seem to go right and it's really making Alexander mad. This book teaches kids that everyone has bad days eventually and it teaches them to help face them. I would say that this book is perfect for kids around the ages of 5-8

This book is super fun! It's about a boy who imagines crazy situations and comes up with creative ways to survive. On his birthday, he expects presents but gets a surprise party instead. Great for kids ages 5-9.

A black and white illustrated book that everyone can relate to! Alexander could tell it was going to be a bad day after he woke up with gum in his hair, since he went to bed with gum in his hair. As he is getting out of bed he trips on his skateboard. He visits his dad at work and things go wrong there too. When he returns home there is kissing on t.v. and that is not good either. It doesn't matter where Alexander goes something bad happens. In the end he thinks about going/moving to Australia. This book is a great reminder that even though bad things happen, there are good things that happen in our day too.… (más)
