Counting on Community is Innosanto Nagara's follow-up to his hit ABC book, A is for Activist. Counting up from one stuffed piñata to ten hefty hens--and always counting on each other--children are encouraged to recognize the value of their community, the joys inherent in healthy eco-friendly activities, and the agency they posses to make change. A broad and inspiring vision of diversity is told through stories in words and pictures. And of course, there is a duck to find on every page!

“Meaningful change begins with doing small things at the local level, like picking up trash on the street, helping a neighbor, planting a community garden. Counting on Community encourages our children to embrace the power within each of us to create the world anew, to become SOLUTIONARIES.”

“Not only is Counting on Community an endearing an beautifully illustrated book, it represents the best hopes and dreams for our communities.”

“Innosanto Nagara is writing a new kind of children's book. Besides being a fun, rhythmic, and lively text to read, the book's illustrations present a world of diversity and complex, inclusive beauty. We should shower our children, schools, libraries, and our communities with books like this one.”

Welcome to Our New Site: 50% Off Some of Seven Stories' Greatest Hits

Politics and fiction, protest and celebration, militancy and tenderness: Over the past twenty years, Seven Stories has earned a reputation for bringing books that might otherwise have been marginalized into the mainstream conversation. Our credo is that publishers have a special responsibility to defend free speech and celebrate the gifts of the imagination—from Noam Chomsky’s 9-11, a surprise bestseller that provided a dissident voice in a time of crisis, to the speculative fiction of Octavia Butler, which blazed a new path for the novel of conscience, to Innosanto Nagara’s A is for Activist, an ABC board book for a new generation of engaged young readers.

To carry on that project into the 21st century, we've launched this new site. And to set things off right, we're offering 50% some of Seven Stories' most beloved titles for one week only.

INNOSANTO NAGARA's new-wave board books encourage children to grow up with confidence in themselves, and to be proactive citizens who are passionate about causes from environmental issues to LGBTQ rights and civil rights. Nagara was born and raised in Indonesia, and moved to the US in 1988. After studying zoology and philosophy at UC Davis, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he worked as a graphic designer for a range of social change organizations, before founding the Design Action Collective, a worker-owned cooperative design studio in Oakland, California.
