"A is for Activist is an ABC board book written and illustrated for the next generation of progressives: families who want their kids to grow up in a space that is unapologetic about activism, environmental justice, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, and everything else that activists believe in and fight for. The alliteration, rhyming, and vibrant illustrations make the book exciting for children, while the issues it brings up resonate with their parents' values of community, equality, and justice. This engaging little book carries huge messages as it inspires hope for the future, and calls children to action while teaching them a love for books"-- Provided by publisher.

A great book with something to appeal to all ages. Great for discussion around the dinner table. Inspirational for writing your own verses.

This book contains lovely artwork! The text is full of alliteration and rhyme which creates a sense of energy and urgency throughout the book. The language really captures the feel of activism. Though this is in the format of a board book, the concepts and images are more developmentally appropriate for an older audience. This would be a great book to read with older children and even teens as a discussion piece.
