Alexandria As Our Lens - a song by Socratic
Alexandria of Africa (Eric Walters) - For Alexandria Hyatt having a fabulous life is easy: she knows what she wants and she knows how to get it. Being glamorous and rich is simply what she was born to be. When Alexandria is arrested for shoplifting, having to drag herself into court to face a judge just seems like a major inconvenience. But Alexandria has been in trouble before–and this time she can’t find a way to scheme out of the consequences. Before she knows it, she’s on a plane headed to Kenya where she has been ordered to work for an international charity. Over 7,000 miles away from home with no hot water, no cell phone reception, no friends or family, Alexandria is confronted with a land as unfamiliar as it is unsettling. Over the course of her month in Africa, Alexandria will face a reality she could never have imagined, and will have to look inside herself to see if she has what it takes to confront it. Recommended for ages young adult.
The Library of Alexandria (Kelly Trumble) - It's hard to find an untouched topic in children's nonfiction, but this comes close. The library at Alexandria was the most famous in the ancient world, a center of learning, a place where much original research in astronomy, anatomy, mathematics, and science was done. Trumble begins with Alexander, who wanted to build a great city in Egypt, but died before it was finished. It was one of his successors who built the library and stocked it with a vast collection of books, some obtained through nefarious means. Succeeding chapters describe the research done at the site, the most interesting, perhaps, being the work of Herophilus, who became an expert in human anatomy by practicing vivisection in order to learn more. Some of the attractively illustrated, full-page color paintings are full of activity; others are more stilted, simply showing people in discussion. In either case, however, the art has a younger feel than the strong, interesting text. Recommended for ages 9-12.

Alexander the Great (4th Century B.C.) - All “Alex” names are essentially descended from this man, so we felt it was appropriate to include him as a historical figure under the name Alexandria. It's been said that Alexander's father spoke these words: "My son, seek thee out a kingdom equal to thyself; Macedonia has not room for thee." Clearly, that's what Alexander went out to accomplish; and indeed, he did! By all accounts, Alexander is considered one of the greatest military generals of all time. During 12 years of epic battles, Alexander's empire spread from Greece to the Himalayas in northern India down to North Africa. His brief glory days were short-lived due to his untimely death at the age of 32. Alexander the Great was a contemporary of the early days of the Roman Empire. He was revered as an icon by the Roman Emperors who sought to emulate his success and legacy. It has been said that even Julius Caesar was jealous of Alexander the Great's accomplishments.
