A is for Activist Book
This product is currently sold out.
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.
The illustrations are also multi-layered. Your child will find something they can learn to recognise 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.
- 28 pages
- Ages 4-6 years
- 15cm x 14cm
About the Author
Innosanto Nagara was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, and moved to the U.S. in 1988 to study zoology at UC Davis. But instead of becoming a zoologist he became an activist and a graphic designer. He also writes and illustrates social justice themed children’s books.
In 2012 Inno wrote and illustrated a little board book that launched another type of movement. Originally A is for Activist was just a personal project for his own child. He wanted to have the book that he wanted to read to his kid over and over and over again. But friends encouraged him to print more copies, and after a successful kickstarter campaign, A is for Activist came into being as a self-published board book.
