Little Feminist Book Club Box May 2020 Review

 

I received this welcome sheet introducing this month’s books. They go over a few details about the book and how you can share your thoughts with them after reading the book with your little ones!

Little Feminist DIY Sheet

This DIY page goes over how you can turn this month’s box into an adventure box! I love that they created this month’s box specifically to look like an envelope so that we can recycle it into a new way to make adventures come to life. I am constantly looking for new activities for my kids and love when they can use their imagination while exploring and discovering the world around us. The picture on this sheet gave my son plenty of ideas as to how he wanted to make his adventure box look!

Lex and Prince Coloring Sheet

My son is obsessed with coloring, he will sit for hours and color. Receiving a coloring sheet is perfect, and I loved that it came with the characters from the book. This book has incredible illustrations, they are so bold and beautiful, so I knew my son would be inspired by the book to make his sheet look really special. My youngest, unfortunately, took a marker to his creation after he finished it so that was sad for him, but he had a lot of fun developing his color sheet!

 

Reading Beauty by Deborah Underwood – Retail Value $17.99 (found on sale here for $12.59)

Right away I was blown away by the illustrations in this book and the bold graphics! I knew my son was going to love it! This takes your usual fairytale, a princess and a curse, and turns it on its head a bit. Lex is a space princess and had a curse placed on her that would eliminate all books from her kingdom if she gets a papercut. Lex is so brave and sets out to break the spell and bring books back to everyone in her kingdom! The story is thrilling and the text has a fun rhythm to it that kept both of my kids engaged. It shows kids that you have to be brave, stand up for what you believe in, and stay positive even when life gets tricky. The images are engaging and the words are pure magic! I love that this book has a female lead and shows diversity in the characters. I am constantly reminding my kids that everyone is different and that is what makes them special, and that differences might seem scary at first, but we all are one. I think these lessons can be taught, but they can also learn these things visually at a very young age that not everyone looks just the same. I not only appreciate being able to show both my son and daughter a brave and powerful female lead, but someone that might not look just like them. My son loves this book so much already and asks to read it a lot at bedtime!

 

What Do You Think Card

Each book comes with a ‘What Do You Think’ card that gives you questions that you can ask your little reader about the book. Each side is broken out by age, which I find so helpful! Already at 4 years old, I can tell that my son finds new meanings and has a different outlook than he did a few months ago. The questions are a great way to discuss the book and they always bring out a new conversation or something silly. When I asked my son what he does to be less scared when he is scared, he came up with so many silly answers, which then rolled into a talk at his bedtime about how we can be less scared (he has been waking up from bad dreams a lot lately so this was timely for us). Books are so important for a child’s imagination, and they are also a great way to have discussions, big or small, after reading so that you can keep the lessons going when storytime is done.

Verdict: I love Little Feminist Book Club! I used to receive this box back in 2018 when it was just my son, but now I also have a daughter so I am always looking to expand our book collection. Little Feminist does an amazing job of selecting books that are engaging and empowering while showing diversity in their characters. Each book always has such a wonderful message while still being engaging. This month’s book is both thrilling and visually beautiful, taking a Cinderella story and making it into one epic adventure! It is so important to us that we show our kids diversity, and that really can start at home with books. For my son, it is so important that he sees that females are strong and smart and can do anything, and this book really had it all! On top of the book, we received the DIY box activity sheet and a coloring page that was so much fun to work on with my son. This subscription would be wonderful for any family that loves to read and is working to empower their kiddos with stories of brave female leads. All in all, I was really happy with my first box back with Little Feminist Book Club, and can’t wait to see what next month will bring us!

  1. Hi Taryn,
    Thanks for the thorough and thoughtful review. I’d be into this box, but it does seem to be pretty low in the value stakes. It’s pretty easy to find children’s books promoting justice and diversity at under $10, so I have to agree with Haylee’s comment. I guess it’s great if you’re a parent short on time and want to secure a regular delivery of engaging reading material for your children, but don’t have the time or access to read through each synopsis to know it’s sending positive messages. They need to do better than just a colouring sheet and a bookmark, I think.

    • Thanks so much for your thoughtful feedback! For me, I see the value in having something special delivered right to us for my kids to open and enjoy. They love getting packages and the fact that this is just for them makes them so excited! It feels special for them, and since we can’t go anywhere right now to do shopping or browse at our local library, I see the value in the specialness for them.

      • Hi Taryn,
        Thanks. Thinking about it like that, I can see the specialness of something exciting arriving in the mail (esp. for those who don’t receive bills yet!). I do wish they’d add another book, though. I think it would help sustain this sub box, because I hope it succeeds in the long-term. Thank you for replying!

  2. 23 dollars for 1 kids book? Whew.

    • Thanks so much for your feedback!
