Children's Books for Young Feminists

Everyone knows there's a gender imbalance in children's literature. From Babar to The Cat in the Hat, kids' books tend to cast put boys in the lead roles, leaving young girls on the sidelines yet again. Here are a few of the most beloved children's books of all time, reimagined to ignite the feminist motors of little girls far and wide.

Ahhh I love this. Other than The Giving Tree, this is like, my personal all-time list of fave kids books....

...and The Giving Tree joke is especially awesome. My mom always tells me it was her favorite book to read to me, and her favorite book about being a mom...

Which, like, woh, ma. GO DO YOU A LI'L BIT. My mom is really dope and is pursuing totally her-own things post-kids, but I always feel so bummed seeing this. She shouldn't be a giving tree! SHAKE YOUR OWN LEAVES FOR YOUR OWN SELF MA, LOVE YA.
