Editorial Reviews

Review

"I like having positive male role models for my sons, and this was an easy way to introduce some to them." - Mona Saves

"This cleverly crafted picture book pays homage not only to diverse heroes, but also to the children who engage in imaginary adventures with them." - School Library Journal

"I also loved how the author managed to slip in tidbits of knowledge for kids to soak in...Kids should have imaginations and pretend but they should also know that they are great and grand like Alexander." - Woman of Hope and Prayer

"A very cute book...The pictures really help move the story right along." - Hanging off the Wire

"This book shares a beautiful message that encourages a child to dream and be more than they can be. Jennifer Fosberry did a wonderful job at writing a charming story for children that's filled with nurturing lessons. It's got a lot of humor and the colorful, vivid imagery makes your child want to read more!" - Hip Mama's Place

"Fosberry does not disappoint in her follow up book aimed to opening the eyes and fostering the imagination of little boys everywhere." - Raising Them Green

"This book really shows little children that they can be whomever they want to be." - Multi-Testing Mommy

"One thing that I really like about these two books (Isabella and Alexander) is that the writing level appeals to young children, but the information at the back of the book educates them at a fairly high level." - Infant Bibliophile

"My kids absolutely LOVE My Name Is Not Alexander and ask for it regularly." - A Little of This, A Little of That

"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." - Mogul Baby

"This book empowers children to realize their true capabilities, while still letting their own personality radiate. " - One Momma Saving Money

"This book not only introduces kids to historical figures, but inspires them to learn from their heroes' actions. Children will realize that they have a lot in common with the great people who have changed the world. If you're looking for a book that encourages your child to chase big dreams, then I highly recommend My Name Is Not Alexander, by Jennifer Fosberry." - Susan Heim on Parenting

"To say I highly recommend My Name Is Not Alexander being in your family's library is an understatement. I will be holding on to my book to share with my future grandkids since my boys are a bit old for it. I enjoyed everything about it!" - Woven by Words

"Discover your hero as Alexander learns how these remarkable men changed the world and inspire him to do the same." - I Am Modern

"Join Alexander in the follow-up to Isabella's story as he takes a wild ride through history, discovering famous men of the past ― scientists, rough riders and heroes. Learn with him as he is inspired by them all, and his dad." - Charlotte Parent

"Alexander is cheeky and cute. The illustrations are vibrant and full of detail, and the content is knowledgeable and fun―the perfect intro for your kid when it comes to some of his-tory's biggest names." - Time Out Chicago Kids

"Alexander pretends to be Thomas Edison, Fred Astaire and other great men. I know how much fun it is to pretend and so do the kiddos." - Crazed Mind

"A wonderful thought provoking book." - Susan's Disney Family

"My Name Is Not Alexander is a good lesson in American history...a great springboard for discussion and a life-saver for all of those questions your child is going to ask about each person." - Mom Most Traveled

"Throughout the day, he pretends to be various famous men...Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, Chief Joseph, Fred Astaire, and Jackie Robinson." - Homespun Light
