Hello there, I’m Alexis. I’m the writer for Pages for Changes, living in beautiful New York, NY. While completing my undergraduate and M.A. degrees in American history and cultural theory, I realized how many of society’s problems are rooted in biases, concepts and premises that we are taught as children. How we think of “maleness”, “femaleness”, consent, skin color and even our own self-conception are impacted by our experiences growing up.
I understand that these topics are not easy to discuss with children and we may not think that the books we choose for babies influence the way they see the world. This is the reason for the blog. Here, I show you the books that make it easy to raise a generation of empathetic, worldly children. These books introduce imagery that reflects the diversity in the world, that shatters traditional gender stereotypes and introduces concepts that prepare children to understand the issues that will affect them throughout life.
I post new content every Sunday and Wednesday so be sure to stop by. I also post regularly on my Instagram and Facebook page. Like and follow Pages for Changes by clicking the social media icons below!
