11 Girl Power Books For The Very Young 0-5

The parents of a 4-year-old girl asked me for suggestions of picture books that featured strong female characters. I thought it would be an easy request until I started searching. It turns out that there aren't as many as I hoped to find.

I wasn't surprised but since I wanted to give you something you could use right away,  I'm providing this list of books with strong female protagonists. Please feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments below.

The covers aren't linked to any websites because I know you're resourceful and can find books in many places including the public library!
