Hi there, my name is Lexy - a father and author of the Friendly Fables children’s book series. I'm also a 'Rap Dad'! My stories and educational 'Rap-A-Long' songs are popular with school-aged kids across Canada and the United States.
I offer an exciting digital storytelling and musical performance that I wish to share with your school or private party.
"Your students will be talking about this performance for days, it’s amazing!"
- Paola Ragone, RECE, YMCA Toronto
We start by reading some heartwarming stories from my Friendly Fables series. These books include tales about animals, friendship and the importance of learning. We then get the children up and dancing with songs from our Rap-a-Long album, from The Dinosaur Rap to Unicorns and Rainbows. Each song has a simple dance routine we teach the children to get them engaged and moving! The performance is approximately 30 minutes. The recommended age range is Kindergarten to Grade 4.
Performance Cost: $125
Performance Add-on: $95 for a set of 14 books (30% discount)

"We had the pleasure of having Alexis come to our school and share his stories with our primary division. Alexis was not only ENTERTAINING but kept the attention of all the children with his stories, animation and questions. He was phenomenal and an absolute joy to have as a guest. Alexis also took the time to work with our Junior and Intermediate divisions with creative writing and was so popular with the students that they felt they too could be authors. Alexis is a captivating speaker that entertains all ages, levels and grades."

"Alexis Alexander recently visited my kids school and WOW!!! My kids got off the bus with so much to say about their amazing day. They loved all of the animated stories Alexis read to them, especially the 'Farts' book. He was funny and engaging - my kids felt inspired themselves to write about their own family experiences! As a mom, I'm thrilled with their new interest in reading and writing. Big thanks to Alexis and everyone at Friendly Fables!"
