Read full description of the books:
When I first read this book, I laughed out loud. Beautiful, radical, but... "Querying Qualities Quickly Quell Distortion" ??? "Not a good kids' book," I quickly dismissed.
And so I believed... until I read it to a two-year-old who was TOTALLY IN LOVE with it. It kept his attention, A to Z. Even reading every word on each page. (And searching for the cat. And sometimes mice.)
Also, the jargon-y language, in action, served as great discussion prompts with some of the older kids in the room. (The older kids were not all 100% engaged in the book, but a few were, which I was not expecting.) We had some deep conversations.
So, now I am going to get my own copy!
Curious to hear about how other kids have responded to it.

Read information about the authorInnosanto Nagara is originally from Indonesia, but moved to the US in 1988 to study zoology and philosophy at UC Davis. Upon graduation, 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, that is dedicated to "serving the Movement." Inno lives in a cohousing community in Oakland where his child is the youngest of eight children to be born into the household, so he has "studied" a lot of children's books over the past twelve years. A is for Activist was Inno's first book. It has now been adapted into Spanish by Martha Gonzalez, and translated into Swedish. Following the success of A is for Activist, Inno wrote and illustrated a follow-up board book, Counting on Community (2015). His third book, My Night in the Planetarium, is a picture book about "the art of resistance".
