Books for Boys: Grades 1-2
In this contemporary classic, veteran children's author Viorst introduces us to Alexander, a kid with an unruly crop of hair, who gets out of bed to face a day that seems to grow increasingly worse with each passing minute.
Where does money go? Last Sunday, Alexander's Grandma Betty and Grandpa Louie gave him a dollar. And he was rich. There were so many things he could do with all of that money. Like buy as much gum as he wanted, or even buy a walkie-talkie, if he kept saving. But he was rich last Sunday.
Emily Elizabeth and Clifford go to visit his brother Nero, who is a firehouse dog. When an alarm goes off, Clifford comes to the rescue — he HELPS OTHERS by rescuing the people and putting out the fire!
It only takes a little to BE BIG!
