What makes a feminist baby? According to Brantz (Not Just a Dot), it's a combination of joy (either from pounding on pots or from going pants-free), self-expression (dressing oneself in a necktie, woolen hat, and outrageously frilly skirt), and doing things her own way: "Feminist baby likes pink and blue/ Sometimes she'll throw up on you!" With a palette as brash as her heroine, Brantz pictures this boundary-free little one as a big-eyed, roly-poly dumpling, usually not wearing any more than a diaper and a hair bow. It's just the thing to encourage kids to be loud, proud, and uncowed. Up to age 2. Agent: Edward Maxwell, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Apr.)

Baby-Toddler—Adapted from Brantz's viral comic, this charming board book will amuse budding feminists and their adults. The title character refuses to be limited by gender stereotypes. She loves pink and blue; she plays with dolls and cars. The rambunctious little one revels in her body, her love of music, and her absolute baby-ness. The rhyming text is singsong and makes for a great read-aloud. The large, expressive eyes; bold lines and font; and bright, cartoonish illustrations will delight the youngest of readers. The strong girl power message makes feminism and following your dreams accessible to toddlers. The final image, of Feminist Baby in Rosie the Riveter–inspired garb, will elicit chuckles and bring the message home. VERDICT A laugh-out-loud, smart, and much-needed addition to board book collections.—Shelley M. Diaz, School Library Journal Copyright 2017 School Library Journal.
