Kid Book: “A is for Activist”

I stumbled upon a book called, “A is for Activist” while searching for children’s thrift stores in Oakland, CA. What a concept!

It’s a little too left for me, but I love the idea of it. Here’s some information about the book below. Order a copy, or pick one up from your local independent bookstore, if it tickles your fancy.

YES! Magazine says:

” .. as it turned out, Nagara was not the only parent hungry for end rhymes featuring revolutionaries and social-justice luminaries. A is for Activist blossomed, as coworkers helped generate content, and a Kickstarter campaign defrayed the cost of development. After seven months of design, writing, revision, and a self-taught course in self-publishing, Nagara produced an ABC book with a decidedly un-Disney outlook.”

The Washington Times says:

Other letters in Mr. Nagara’s children’s book include: D is for democracy, G is for Grassroots, L- G- B – T – Q is for Love who you choose, T is for Trans, as in transgendered, and Z is for Zapatistas, as in Mexican revolutionaries.

Besides, who needs fairy tales when you have cooperative workplaces, collective bargaining, feminism and immigration rights?
