"Good morning, Alexander," the father said. "It's time for breakfast, and then let's play ball."
"My name is not Alexander!" said the little boy.
"Then who has been sleeping in my son's bed?" asked the father.
"I am THEODORE, the greatest, grandest president who ever was!"
"Well, Theodore, PARK yourself here and SAVE your ENERGY for today's game."

What a cute book with many different people that ALexander pretends to be. Love it!
This book is adorable, but it is not formatted like "My Name Is Not Isabella." It just not in landscape format, does not have a "Read To Me" option AND is not a nookbook with the beautiful pictures filling up the screen. It's more like a regular nookbook with the pictures small and at the bottom of the page. Total disappointment. Still a great book, but not what I expected AT ALL!
