"Full of wit, beauty, and fun, we can think of no better way to learn the alphabet."—Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis, author of The Shock Doctrine / filmmaker

Personally I like the book, as does my 4 year old daughter, It can be read on a few levels and is nicely interactive. My aim is to try and raise a well rounded, open minded person who can think for themselves and books like these are a useful way to introduce big ideas in a simple way, great for starting conversations. Other reviewers have used words like "preachy" and "indoctrination" to describe this book. Well i would argue that as much as any single children's book can be indoctrinating i would much rather a book that tries to install ideas of an inclusive world than reading my daughter asinine books that teach her that all she can aspire be are imaginary roles such as princess or fairy, who of cause are all pretty. pointless and powerless and who,s only hope in life is to be rescued by some prince or other.
