FEMINIST BABY

Loryn Brantz's Feminist Baby has a baby unlike any other you've met before. Feminist Baby is loud, proud, and unafraid to do her own thing. 


Feminist Baby likes pink and blue, playing with cars and dolls, dressing in dresses and ties. Feminist Baby has no preconceived notions of what is deemed "socially acceptable" so she does what she wants, blissfully adhering to her own set of rules. This is the kind of baby who can be anything she wants to be because she's not afraid to try anything and everything, and she's a wonderful reminder to all children, regardless of gender, that the best way to learn who you are is to try everything.


The pages are large -- the trim size of this book is much bigger than most board books -- so we get giant text for each spread. This over-sizedness, combined with the use of only the brightest, most pigmented colors, is just such a fantastic reflection of Feminist Baby in general: nothing about this girl is subtle and nothing about her presence is small. She's a force to be reckoned with!


Feminist Baby published earlier this year from Disney-Hyperion!
