A is for activist by Innosanto Nagara

A is for Activist is an ABC board book written and illustrated for the next generation of progressives: families who want their kids to grow up in a space that is unapologetic about activism, environmental justice, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, and everything else that activists believe in and fight for. This engaging little book carries huge messages as it inspires hope for the future, and calls children to action while teaching them a love for books

Equality and diversity by Charlie Ogden

This timely book discusses why the acceptance of diversity is important in society to prevent discrimination based on race, religion, and sex. Case studies of real-world events help readers understand the consequences of inequality.
