A fantastic reading list, one book for each month of the year.
This is so cool! This person read A is for Activist to a group of second graders at PS 333 in the Bronx, NY, as part of their Real Men Read program! This little board book is written for families with younger kids–but I'm always in awe of the performance artists and teachers who are able to bring it to life for children of all ages!

One of the most exciting things about having written A is for Activist has been connecting with this whole community of writers, illustrators, activists and artists who are also into creating Children's Books that Matter. Maya Christina Gonzalez is one of the pioneers, and I'm honored to join her, Cory Silverberg, Janine Macbeth and others as part of Maya's course. If you're one of those people who has (as she puts it) "a children's book inside you", check out this video:
