"I had not realized just HOW mini these books are. Yes, each book features 4 women -- and literally each woman has an image on the lefthand page and a simple sentence split into 4 lines of text on the righthand page.

I do appreciate that each book contains a mix of races/ethnicities and nationalities -- it's not all white and/or USian women.

"Hillary Clinton ran for office and proved that girls can be in charge!" is bit rough to read after the November 2016 election -- and honestly I felt uncomfortable with the deployment of "proved" in any text (thankfully it's not all of them, but it's 1-2 per book). First of all, dominant culture will often accept exceptional members of minority/oppressed groups as exceptions without changing their mind about the capabilities of members of that group generally. And secondly, this framing implicitly privileges the dominant group -- when Lucille Ball "proved that girls can make you laugh," was that somehow new information to girls and non-binary folks whose female friends had been making them laugh for generations? I get that the text is intentionally very simple, and that other verbs the books use like "showed" have similar problems, but generally I just wish the books had found ways to highlight these women's accomplishments without positioning them as like the first of their kind.

"“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them”- Unknown.

I was sent the Little Feminist Board Box Set by Abrams&Chronicle Books in exchange for an honest review.


These four board books are the cutest thing ever!! With 16 Feminist icons and merely a sentence for each one, Kleinman perfectly captures each one. There’s four board books in this set, Artists, Pioneers, Activists and Leaders. I think Leaders was my favourite one but I do love the Artists one! The mini Frida Kahlo is adorable!!

These are perfect for anyone with a small child as they are realistic and informative. However they should be bought by anyone as they make a perfect little gift! I am definitely going to be buying my little cousin a set for her Birthday

" Cute simplified intros to some powerful females. Each themed board book is about 4 feminists with one page of their illustrated image and then paired with a few words on the opposite side. I would personally seek out other board books of these kinds rather than this one but again it's a cute empowering message. " said.

" Bight bold illustrations of positive female role models and simple sentences like "Sally Ride explored space and showed that girls shine bright." These books are developmentally appropriate and packed full of positive messages. There are four books in the series: Artists, Activists, Leaders, and Pioneers. So cute! -Alexis S. " said.
