Are you busy raising a little anarchist? Then you’re gonna looooove A Rule Is To Break: A Child’s Guide to Anarchy. As Boing Boing shares:
A Rule Is To Break: A Child’s Guide to Anarchy is a perfectly wonderful picture book about the spirit of anarchism and its utterly fitting dovetail with the joy of childhood. The book is full of excellent advice, wonderfully illustrated.
Along with the pages reproduced in this post, there’s such goodies as “Give stuff away for free,” “Speak your mind,” and “Listen to the tiniest voice.”
Also: “Build it, don’t buy it” and “Stay up all night.” There’s nothing about setting fire to cars or joining the black bloc — just sound advice about being happy, generous and caring for your community.
You can see more illustrations at at the source!

In a similar vein – our friends bought our son Tales for Little Rebels: A Collection of Radical Children’s Literature for his first birthday.
There’s also The ABCs of Anarchy!
I need this
Got this from my in-laws for the holidays. Can’t wait to read to my LO when it arrives in March! Pictures are great and most of these rules to break are definitely things we want our child to do. I might skip over the page that encourages kids not take baths, though 😉
You have awesome in-laws!
Was cruising Amazon and saw another book that looks just as awesome: A is for Activist by Innosanto Nagara… just thought I’d like to share that with this thoughtful community 🙂
