Description


An ABC book celebrating and inspiring diversity

A Is for All the Things You Are: A Joyful ABC Book is an alphabet board book developed by the National Museum of African American History and Culture that celebrates what makes us unique as individuals and connects us as humans. This lively and colorful book introduces young readers, from infants to age seven, to twenty-six key traits they can explore and cultivate as they grow. Each letter offers a description of the trait, a question inviting the reader to examine how he or she experiences it in daily life, and lively illustrations. The book supports understanding and development of each child's healthy racial identity, the joy of human diversity and inclusion, a sense of justice, and children's capacity to act for their own and others' fair treatment.

Each page invites interaction, as it describes and illustrates a trait, then invites the reader to think about–and talk about–how he or she experiences that attribute.  The illustrations are diverse and inclusive; children of all colors, cultures, and abilities and are illustrated with respect, delight, and love."  Lit for Kids
