About the Author

Children's book author and illustrator Innosanto Nagara's books encourage children to grow up with confidence in themselves, and to be proactive citizens who are passionate about causes from environmental issues to LGBTQ rights and civil rights. Born and raised in Indonesia, Inno moved to the US in 1988. After studying zoology and philosophy at UC Davis, Inno moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and founded the Design Action Collective, a worker-owned cooperative design studio. Inno lives in Oakland in a cohousing community with nine adults and eight kids. His first book, A is for Activist, started a movement in social justice book publishing for children. He is also the author and illustrator of Counting on Community, My Night in the Planetarium, The Wedding Portrait, and M is for Movement.

Reviews

"Nagara’s direct, pragmatic approach to activism for a child audience reaches new levels of specificity and real-world application in this book ... Vibrant colors infuse Nagara’s expressive, textured illustrations, which feature a diverse range of humans, protest signs, and symbolic as well as literal depictions of societal issues and potential solutions.... An accessible, all-too-timely manifesto for young activists (and everyone else)." —Kirkus Reviews

"With Seussian rhyme, Nagara crafts a progressive call-to-arms about social justice topics, including universal health care, climate change, free public education, and prison abolition. Utilizing a framing device—a child questioned by skeptics—Nagara walks readers through a rhythmic summation of contemporary issues. Busily colorful digital art combines textures, gradients, and typography, reinforcing the energy with which Nagara conveys the necessity of standing up for various rights. Though the book meanders across a wide range of topics, and the rhyme prizes levity over clarity (“Look up! you exclaim./ What do you see?/ A HUGE ball of plasma!/ Clean energy for free!”), this primer offers a useful starting point for readers seeking to begin conversations about social justice." —Publishers Weekly
