" This is intended to introduce young children to activism through the alphabet, with rhymes for each letter and lots of artwork. It is a great-looking book, but I think some of the vocabulary is too advanced for very young children - I think there are some adults who might even struggle through some of the pronunciations while reading this out loud. " said.

" Awww... A is for Activist is a board book filled with social justice concepts. Some of the concepts are probably a bit much for the younger crowd, but no harm in starting early! At the very least, the words sound fun when said aloud, and kids get to find the cat on every page! " said.

" Bought it for my nephew and I honestly think it’s so great. I didn’t even realize you could get kids books like these and these are such important concepts to learn. A lot of people worry that it’s too soon but I disagree, kids are smarter than we give them credit for. If we give them the right tools, the could understand and achieve a lot. " said.

" What a marvelous little board book. It is a beautiful way to introduce your favorite toddler to the concepts of activism, diversity, environment, and other important issues. " said.

" I honestly don't know what to think about this one. Need to think on it for a while. " said.

" I really, really enjoyed this for me, myself, an adult, but I have to take off a star for the fact that there are some big concepts for kids to understand (especially since it's framed in the context of an ABC book), there is a huge range of issues covered that not every progressive might agree on, and there are a few scathing lines that ring pretty bitter " said.

" I loved the concept, the artwork, and much of the writing, which I thought was lyrical and would probably be fun to read to a child. I agreed with some other reviewers that in places the writing could be a little choppy and maybe could have benefited from additional editing. And it is a super biased book, but it doesn't bother me much because I'm also biased, and I think it's a valuable addition to the other perspectives present in children's books. " said.

"This book was fabulous. It was full of diversity, politics, feminism, LGBTQ...it was not your run of the mill board book that is usually presented. I love how books like this present them selves more and more. It is a breath of fresh air considering that most board books are gender specific; that being, in terms of the books telling girls that they are princesses, that they should wear makeup (body issues) and be a wife in the kitchen and boys books concentrate on sports, dinosaurs, and being tough. I love love loved this book!!!" said.
