    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.
