A is for Activist is an ABC board book for the next generation of progressives: Families that want their kids to grow up in a space that is unapologetic about activism, environmental justice, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, and so on. The rhymes are fun for the kids to hear and play with, but also meaningful for grownups. It is a book that adults will enjoy reading over and over. The illustrations are multi-layered. Children will find something they can learn to recognize on each page. There are new things to discover over multiple readings. There are references for adults to get , and maybe even be a conversation starter down the line. Oh, and there s always a cat.

"Innosanto Nagara's book A is for Activist is beautiful, inspiring, and offers an opportunity for parents to explore their values with their children. At this time in history we need books for children that use words like, justice, ally, freedom, and advocate. Our children are the activists who will help to heal the world." --Rona Renner (RN, Parent Educator, Host Childhood Matters Radio Show)
