BABY FEMINISTS! READING AND PRESENTATION

3:40 in the Kid’s Annex

Reading with Libby Babbott-Klein (Author) and Jessica Walker (Illustrator)

Before Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Mae Jemison, Frida Kahlo, and others were change-making feminists, they were . . . babies! In this board book that’s perfect for budding feminists, lift the flap to discover what these iconic figures might have looked like as adorable babies and toddlers.

A collaboration between author Libby Babbott-Klein and illustrator Jessica Walker, both of them young mothers, BABY FEMINISTS is helpful for parents mulling how to raise kids with feminist values, especially in these retrograde political times. How does one impart confidence and a strong sense of self-worth to kids? How do we empower girls, while also re-framing the definition of manhood for boys? BABY FEMINISTS offers a chance for parents to explore these ideas in an age-appropriate and joyful way with the kids in their lives.
