About this deal

I love that there is now a book I can share with my granddaughters that teaches a new vocabulary about human and social justice values - and workers rights!

This book is propaganda for kids, obviously, which makes me a little uncomfortable, as much I agree with the opinions. Also, the jargon-y language, in action, served as great discussion prompts with some of the older kids in the room. I wish this beautiful and inspiring book was around when my daughter was young but fortunately there are plenty of cool children around today who will devour what Inno is serving up! Rona Renner (RN, Parent Educator, Host Childhood Matters RadioShow): Innosanto Nagara’s book “A is for Activist” is beautiful, inspiring, and offers an opportunity for parents to explore their values with their children. 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!Definitely get this for your kids if you want them to rebel in later life by joining their college's Republican club and/or working for Monsanto. STEM will give the kids the critical thinking and the specific skills needed to actually take action and solve the world's problems.

Shaya Tayefe Mohaje, in her online review titled “‘A’ is for Activist, ‘B’ is for a book you should read your children,” lauds Nagara for his use of “clever rhymes—à la Dr. Note that some of the negative reviews complain that it's not suitable for a board book, or for tots.

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 depicted resonate with their parents’ values of community, equality and justice. A former colleague posted a photo of a children’s book as her Facebook profile picture – A is for Activist by Innosanto Nagara.

The illustration shows a collage of eyes of people with all different skin colors, reinforcing diversity and unity, and the idea that it is every citizen’s duty to be vigilant and look out for injustices. Kids would be better off learning about STEM subjects and being given a desire to learn more about that. At this time in history we need books for children that use words like, justice, ally, freedom, and advocate.

At this time in history we need books for children that use words like justice, ally, freedom, and advocate. The illustrations are colorful and interesting and while I’m not a huge fan of their style, I think many readers will like them, including young readers/listeners.

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 wise mentors teach to love all critters, the earth, and treat all living beings (including humans) with respect. Then I will be confident that I have raised a conscious citizen of the planet, rather than someone who repeats a complex viewpoint they have been hearing since before they could speak properly. You want to teach your kids how to be tolerant and kind to everyone while being woke and ready to take on the world's problems.

Bovendien wil ik niet dat mijn dochter over 18 jaar deze recensie terugvindt en me moreel aansprakelijk stelt voor haar opvattingen, dus ik doe net alsof ik hier enorm enerzijds/anderzijds over denk.
