About this deal

A is for Activist covers all this ground with a playful rhyming style that makes you want to turn the pages and read the book over and over again. This book is propaganda for kids, obviously, which makes me a little uncomfortable, as much I agree with the opinions. Also in both the English and the Spanish, the “I” page stands for indígena and immigrante: “Indigenous and Immigrant. Written in the toddler format of pictures with words, I found the words got a bit complex for the focus-age group: Advocate, Abolitionist, Cooperating, Indigenous, Questioning, Querying, and "Z is for Zapatista of course". All of a sudden Hoopla (one of several providers of econtent for my local library) has visible representation.

And more likely than not, if you are the kind of parent that would read this book to your child, you would have raised them to agree with the book entirely by the time they are mature enough to think about these issues on their own. Personally I like the book, as does my 4 year old daughter, It can be read on a few levels and is nicely interactive. 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!A is for Activist speaks to the possibilities of change, of proactive parenting, of creating community, and of celebrating our collective histories.

Well i would argue that as much as any single children's book can be indoctrinating i would much rather a book that tries to install ideas of an inclusive world than reading my daughter asinine books that teach her that all she can aspire be are imaginary roles such as princess or fairy, who of cause are all pretty. Once they are in grade 4 or so, we can start telling them the details of the harsh reality of this world. This bestselling ABC book is 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.Also, the jargon-y language, in action, served as great discussion prompts with some of the older kids in the room. The wise mentors teach to love all critters, the earth, and treat all living beings (including humans) with respect. 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. Nagara, on his book’s Facebook page, provides a “Who’s Who” of the faces he illustrated, and they include Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’m so disappointed because I’d seen this book on someone’s (real) shelves and jumped to reserve it at the library to see if I’d want this for giving new baby gifts.The alphabet format makes zero sense on some pages for example using a word that begins with “J” on the “H” page.
