"The larger world is finally waking up to climate change. It’s taken fires and droughts and tornadoes to jolt folks. Randi has been on the forefront."

– Istar Schwager, PhD, former Director of Research, Children’s Television Workshop Publishing Division

"Randi Hacker's latest abecedary employs the tightest rhyme scheme I've seen in years, and has a place on the shelves of any library serving kids. Text and illustrations will charm and educate younger readers, while adult readers will marvel at Hacker's rhythm and cleverness in crafting rhymes about a sometimes dry subject matter."

– Daniel Coleman, Collection Development Librarian, Lawrence (KS) Public Library

"AB(zero)C inspires everyday actions that young people can take to support a resilient planet and make a difference. This is a valuable primer for youngsters who are acutely aware of humanity's impact on the environment, and who want to live their lives in right relationship with Earth. And the artwork is joyous and glorious."

– Sami Aaron, Chair and Treasurer, The Resilient Activist

AB(zero)C is an alphabet book that gives children information, courage and hope. Each rhyming verse embodies a concept that can open a discussion between parent and child about what is happening, how we will face it and ways we can live on our wounded planet without wounding it further. The illustrations are watercolor paintings by Mary Camille Connolly, who also illustrated M is for Masks, HPB’s coronavirus alphabet book.
