And then the princess and prince charming blah blah blah...

I have a little niece, just over a year old. Recommend some storybooks with feminist themes, or just generally strong female characters!

One side of her family likes to get traditional "Disney princess" sort of toys and books for her. Her mom is not so into reinforcing traditional gender scripts, so I'd like to balance out the Disney Princesses with some fun, feminist-y storybooks! I'm thinking of getting a few with some range of age-appropriateness for Christmas this year.
(Sidenote: I've never had a baby to buy for, so I don't really have any idea what's appropriate for a 1 year old, as opposed to a 3 year old or 4 year old. I assume that, at this age, she doesn't really understand it anyways so maybe it doesn't matter)
