Alex and Alex

Alex and Alex
A simple, engaging story introducing ideas of non-binary identities, tolerance, and acceptance to very young readers, from the writer of the critically acclaimed picture book, The Pocket Chaotic. Alex and Alex have lots of things in common. They love playing and dressing up and building things. They also are very different to one another; Alex is very messy, and Alex is very tidy, Alex likes running and kicking a ball and Alex likes reading and dreaming. After a trip to the museum goes a little bit awry, Alex and Alex have some cooling off time. But they always make up because Alex really really really really really really REALLY.... likes Alex! This is a book for very young readers introducing ideas of tolerance and friendship in a completely non-gendered way. Neither character is identified as a boy or a girl, and the activities that each one enjoys is a mix of traditional 'boy' and 'girl' things Aimed at children who are just at the cusp of gender awareness and role-play, it provides a much-needed counterbalance to more traditional, binary pre-school literature. Boldly illustrated by Ben Javen
