Review:

"Full of wit, beauty, and fun, we can think of no better way to learn the alphabet." --Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis, author of The Shock Doctrine / filmmaker

"Fun, funny, exquisitely illustrated and brilliantly written with a message that is sure to resonate with kids. May a thousand young activists bloom!" --Medea Benjamin, cofounder of Global Exchange and Code Pink

"I wish this beautiful and inspiring book was around when my daughter was young, but fortunately there were plenty of cool children around today who will devour what Inno is serving up!" --Dan Zanes, maker of 21st century all-ages music and Grammy Award winning album Catch that Train!

"The alliteration and rhymes have the rhythm and fun of standard ABC books, burrowing into little ears and prompting memorization and spontaneous recitation." --Yes! Magazine"

"A is for Activist 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." --Rona Renner, RN, parent educator, and host of Childhood Matters

"A is for Activist speaks to the possibilities of change, of proactive parenting, of creating community, and of celebrating our collective histories. This book is rad!" --Tomas Moniz, writer/editor rad dad zine

"Reading it is almost like reading Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, but for two-year olds - full of pictures and rhymes and a little cat to find on every page that will delight the curious toddler and parents alike." --Occupy Wall Street

"When I bring books into our home, I want beautiful books that are going to remain relevant and meaningful and reflect respect for children and a vision of a sound world. A is for Activist was an easy choice!" --Maya Christina Gonzalez, author and illustrator of Mi Colores, Mi Mundo

"A de Activista is an important tool that re-enforces core educational standards and will inspire children towards civic participation in their communities and throughout the world!" --Jose-Luis Orozco, bilingual educator, children's book writer and musician

"It's essential that children know that the world we live in isn't perfect and that we all have the ability to change it, to make it better for everyone. The organizer strives to make the world more just." --Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director, National Day Laborer Organizing Project

About the Author:

INNOSANTO NAGARA's new-wave board books encourage children to grow up with confidence in themselves, and to be proactive children who are passionate about causes from environmental issues to LGBTQ rights and civil rights. Nagara was born and raised in Indonesia, and moved to the US in 1988. After studying zoology and philosophy at UC David, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he worked as a graphic designer for a range of social change organizations, before founding the Design Action Collective, a worker-owned cooperative design studio in Oakland, California.
