Book collections are often eclectic and personal; unexpected or odd or insightful.

Below is a list of some of the best feminist picture books perfect for the budding feminist (this means boys and girls) in your life. In these books you’ll see adventurous and self-reliant heroines, wide-ranging definitions of femininity, a peaceful co-existence with the earth, girls being true to themselves and their identities, and girls embracing their individuality and ambitions. Are these the only feminist-friendly children’s picture books? Of course not! And for that I’m so grateful. But hopefully this list will inspire you and I’d love to see the comment thread explode with countless other titles and ideas.
