Books: My Name Is Not Alexander


Jennifer Fosberry’s new book My Name Is Not Alexander is now out and it delivers the same vibrant illustrations and style as her other work, My Name Is Not Isabella.

From the moment Alexander wakes up in bed, he goes through an imaginary trip through history and pretends to be some of the innovative men who influenced and shaped out world.

Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, and Fred Astaire are just a few of the examples the little boy proudly tells his dad.

When I read it to my kids, ages 2 and 5, they pay attention to the book. I think it’s the bold typography and detailed pictures that get them interested (watch the video on the sidebar). They’re too young to understand who these famous men are but when they’re older and want to read the book for themselves, there’s a “Men Who Changed The World” section in the back.

After reading this book you might want to ask your child what they want to be when they grow up. My son’s usual answer is that he wants to be a doctor, and I’m fine with that!

My Name Is Not Alexander is published by Sourcebooks and retails for $16.99.
