An irresistible timely lift-the-flap board book featuring lush illustrations of your favorite feminist icons as adorable babies!
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, discover what these iconic figures might have looked like as adorable babies and toddlers. With its inspiring message that any baby can grow up to make the world a better place for all genders, this board book makes the perfect baby gift for any family that wants to raise children who can recognize Gloria Steinem on sight.
Renowned feminists from the past and present were all babies once, Babbott-Klein suggests with this timely board book. On the right-hand pages, Walker presents collagelike, die-cut portraits of each individual (including Frida Kahlo, Billie Jean King, the Obamas, and Yoko Ono), and flaps lift to reveal them as babies. Babbott-Klein drives home the lightly tongue-in-cheek conceit with brief descriptions of each featured feminist. "Before she rose to the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was... a baby." Adult Ginsburg appears in her trademark glasses and collar; baby Ginsburg is similarly clothed and clutching a gavel. While adult readers may be the most tickled by the concept, the predictable formula and interactive element provide a playful hook for future feminists. Ages up to 3.

Not entertaining to kids. Some of the illustrations are plain old creepy.
