We Say No!: A Child's Guide to Resistance (Hardcover)
Children are our future, and this picture book is for all the burgeoning revolutionaries. Playful illustrations with a message of cooperation and resistance. Say no to the expensive overlord apples, and yes to difference and dancing! There's a message here for all of us, children or otherwise. [Tanya]— From We Say No!: A Child's Guide to Resistance
"In We Say NO John and Jana's wee playful anarchists return with a lovely and refreshing memo to their mates: Every rebellious NO is also quite naturally an exquisite YES No to war is yes to peace; no to hatred, an embracing yes to love; no to being labeled, sorted, measured, ranked, and judged, an empowering yes to one's own distinctive humanity and potential agency."--Bill Ayers, educator and author of Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident
In this delightful follow-up to the bestselling A Rule Is To Break: A Child's Guide to Anarchy, John & Jana's wee rebels form a smiling mob to resist biggies and baddies. We learn that differences and creativity make us all stronger. Together we tear down walls, celebrate truth, make new friends, and happily work to create a better world
