Female characters – picture books

January 23, 2020

EILEEN BROWNE (guest post)

Female characters – picture books (work in progress)
Autumn 2019

After discovering that only one in three picture or baby books in the UK (and USA) has a female lead, (and only one in five with animal characters), I began compiling this list.

All books on the list are ‘a good read’, with either female protagonists, equal numbers of females & males or no gendered characters.

All are paperback fiction, unless otherwise stated. 

Books published in the last four years have the date in bold.

If titles are out of print, they can often be found in libraries or on line.

Until females and males are equally depicted in children’s media from birth onwards, there’s little chance of gender equality in adulthood.

 BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic) titles are indicated with an asterisk*.
