A is for Activist is an ABC board book written and illustrated by Innosanto Nagara 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 us grownups. It was important to Inno that the book be one that he too would enjoy reading over and over—not something adults would want to hide after day 3, even if their kid loved it. The illustrations are also multi-layered. Your kid will find something they can learn to recognize on each page. There are new things to discover over multiple readings. There are references for grownups to “get”, and maybe even be a conversation starter down the line. Oh, and there’s always a cat.
