A Is for All the Things You Are: A Joyful ABC Book
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, aged 0-7, to 26 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 vibrant illustrations. The book supports understanding and development of each child's healthy racial identity, the joy in human diversity and inclusion, a sense of justice, and children's capacity to act for their own and others' fair treatment.
