First, I didn’t know that there was more Alexander books! I will be picking up the rest of this collection. People ask me all of the time what books did I enjoy reading as a kid and nothing comes to mind. I have always been a reader, and I don’t know if there truly is one book that set me on the reading path. But now that I have a kid of my own, I gravitate towards the books that I know, the books that I enjoyed. Alexander is a beloved character for me, and Peanut seemed to enjoy the story. I also have to agree with Alexander’s mom that some days are just like that.
