Feminist Books for Children

Looking for gifts for young girls or for your adult feminist friends? The Girls Are Not Chicks coloring book includes gems like:

Two ballerinas dancing: "No one wants to fight the patriarchy alone."

Or there's Princess Smartypants which opens with:

"Princess Smartypants did not want to get married. She enjoyed being a Ms."

Obviously, the need for feminist books for young children is huge. I hope people buy these and donate them to their local school libraries. The Guardian has more.
