A is for Activist: Because its never too early to indoctrinate your young'ens

Inquiring  Berkeley parents want to know. When is the developmentally appropriate age to begin teaching  our little ones about the oppression/privilege dynamics of modern society?

Apparently,  pre-school is just about right.

"A" is for Activist,  is a new board book aimed for your tiniest anarchist.  Written and illustrated by Innosanto Nagara, it bills itself as the ABC board book for the kids of the 99%.

No, I'm not making this up.

Lest you say "Only in Berkeley", you should know that its also available on Amazon for $8.99. Because even anarchists and activists need to pull a profit.

The reviews are, shall we say, mixed?
This was interesting, written by William E. Fleischmann

"Such a book should never have been written, let alone presented to either of the audiences to which it is aimed. For the new reader, it smacks of brainwashing; for the critical thinker, it is mindlessly simple. For the responsible parent, it's merely a poor choice all around."

Can't help but wonder. Is "S" for smash the state?

Anna Baltzer is puffy with spawn. Wanna bet Anna (pregnant pause here) will have this on her baby registry?
