SKU: 9781644210147 Category:

A new book by the author of A is for Activist is a rhyming, boldly illustrated vision of a better world.

When you go to a march

And raise your sign high

You'll make people smile

who thought you were shy

And you'll make people wonder, does that kid really know why?

You DO know of course

That's why you are there

You're there to say STOP!

What's happening's not fair

Then they say,

we know what you're against

End poverty stop war…

But okay

then what are you for?

Oh! What are we for!

That's my favorite question

And I'm sure it's yours too

Because you pay attention

You have so many answers

And so many options

And so many solutions that you want to impart

The only hard question is where does one start?

Oh, The Things We're For! is a celebration of the better world that is not only possible, but is here today if we choose it. Today's kids are well aware of the many challenges that they face in a world they are inheriting, from climate change to police violence, crowded classrooms to healthcare. Poetically written and beautifully illustrated in Innosanto Nagara's (A is for Activist) signature style, this book offers a vision of where we could go–and a future worth fighting for. Oh, the Things We're For! is a book for kids, and for the young at heart of all ages.
