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 re...

Not for me!
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. What a great idea!
The most stars I would have given anyway is 3.
This is a board book, so presumably geared toward babie...

I've come home from work to catch my father-in-law brainwashing my kids with Fox News playing on TV so it's nice to finally be able to combat that nonsense with an over-the-top left-leaning screed like this alphabet book.

My first read through of the book was choppy. It took me a couple of reads to get the rhythm of the words (it could also be that I have...

I like the idea of sharing your beliefs with your children, but I think this book is slightly ridiculous. Number one, this is a board book. The words on the pages are very high level words. I read this book with a third grader and she didn't understand what was going on! If you want to make a boa...

I love things that you accidentally stumble upon that impact you. A is for Activist is an example of this. This is one of the most progressive and amazing books that I've ever read. This is the book that is filled with ideas that so many parents may want to share with their children, but are afra...

This book is propaganda for kids, obviously, which makes me a little uncomfortable, as much I agree with the opinions. However, that kind of discomfort-turned-into-honest-dialogue is exactly what's missing from children's books these days, so I applaud this one.
