Book Review & Giveaway: My Name Is Not Alexander by Jennifer Fosberry


Just how big can a little kid dream?

Ask Alexander, as he takes a wild ride and discovers the sky's the limit!

Jennifer Fosberry's follow-up to her New York Times Bestseller My Name Is Not Isabella follows a young boy on an imaginary trip through history as he pretends to be some of the innovative men who influenced and shaped our world.

Through Alexander's imaginative journey, he discovers how great men become heroes; the roughest rider can be a surprisingly gentle (Theodore Roosevelt), a strong leader is also the most peaceful (Chief Joseph), and sometimes, being brave about what makes you different will not only help you break records, but inspire others(Jackie Robinson).

This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the characteristics that parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunts will want to pass along t the boys of their lives.  Discover your hero as Alexander learns how these remarkable men changed the world and inspire him to do the same.

A back of the book "Men Who Changed the World" section features short bios of the famous men Alexander pretends to be.

About the Author

Jennifer Fosberry is a science geek turned children's book writer.  After working in the high-tech industry in Silicon Valley and running away to Costa Rica for a few years, she returned to the San Francisco Bay area to read, write, raise kids, and not do too much housework.  She lives with her husband and three children and wishes for a puppy.

MY REVIEW

My Name is Not Alexander is a wonderfully written and illustrated book.  Alexander uses his imagination to imagine he is famous people from back in time.  Alexander shows kids that it is okay to dream and use their imagination.
