Top Ten Tuesday: Feminist Picture Books

This week's topic is a freebie. I'm chatting about some favorite feminist picture books biographies I've read so far this year. I love reading about smart women. Several of these books were my first introduction to these women. And the books made quite an impact.

I hadn't really thought about feminist picture books before. I'm writing these down for gifts for a friend's daughter.

YES! I needed this post. I’m getting sick of reading the same books to my niece. We need to branch out and try some new ones.
