Little Feminist Book Club Box December 2020 Review

I received this welcome card 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!

 

My Rainbow by Trinity Neal & DeShanna Neal – Retail Value $17.99

This book is all about self-love, showing who we truly are, and acceptance. I absolutely loved the bright bold illustrations and the love that came out of each page. In this book, we meet Trinity, a transgender girl that really wants to have long hair. Her family comes together to try to find a way to get her long hair quickly since they all know that growing it out can be a tricky process for Trinity. Trinity’s mom works so hard to make her a wig that will not only give her daughter long hair but will show her bright and amazing spirit! This book honestly made me cry because it felt so beautiful. Many transgender people have to hide their true selves for many many years, but here we have a young girl who is so deeply loved by her family. They would move mountains to help her and all they want is to see her happy as her truest self. Imagine being someone that has to hide their identity even from the ones they love the most? My son is on the younger end of the age range for this box, so I will say that he wasn’t too involved in the book. He absolutely loved the story, the illustrations, and loved how happy Trinity was in the end. He just didn’t have a ton of questions and I don’t think understood the word transgender when we tried to talk it through with him. That is ok! Learning is a journey and I don’t expect him to catch onto things right away, but I think this is a great start to bigger conversations about people and the world. It will be a handy book to have as he grows as well. Learning, acceptance, openness, self-love, being your true self, are all things that I want to teach my son and I love having books to show him what that is all about!

From Amazon:

A dedicated mom puts love into action as she creates the perfect rainbow-colored wig for her transgender daughter, based on the real-life experience of mother-daughter advocate duo Trinity and DeShanna Neal.

Warm morning sunlight and love fill the Neal home. And on one quiet day, playtime leads to an important realization:Trinity wants long hair like her dolls. She needs it to express who she truly is.

So her family decides to take a trip to the beauty supply store, but none of the wigs is the perfect fit. Determined, Mom leaves with bundles of hair in hand, ready to craft a wig as colorful and vibrant as her daughter is.

With powerful text by Trinity and DeShanna Neal and radiant art by Art Twink, My Rainbow is a celebration of showing up as our full selves with the people who have seen us fully all along.

 

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! This month’s book was a new topic for my son, but he didn’t really understand the topic in too much depth which meant he didn’t have a ton of questions. I love using these cards to help guide what we learned in the story and to help him understand new topics. My favorite question for his age range was, “what is something that makes you feel like you?” This is such an important thing to talk to our children about so that they can look within and feel comfortable talking about who they are and what they love about themselves. To me, the lesson here really is all about self-love and acceptance.

 

Little Feminist In Action: I Am + Stickers

This month’s Little Feminist In Action page is titled ‘I Am.’ The page encourages your little one and you to write, draw, or sing all of the things that make you unique! The bottom of the page even features Trinity’s ‘I am’ circle. This was a really wonderful activity to do with my son and I truly loved hearing his answers about himself. My husband and I made our own as well. What a wonderful and engaging activity that the whole family can join in on. It also tells us so much about ourselves and each other. We also got these amazing stickers that both of my kids really loved!

Verdict: Little Feminist Book Club introduced us to the beautiful story of Trinity, a transgender girl, and her loving family. I absolutely loved reading this book! For me, it reminded me that being who we truly are isn’t always easy, it takes courage, and it takes love from those around us. This book is truly about love. My son didn’t fully grasp everything in the book, but he absolutely loved Trinity and her story. He was so happy when she got her long hair in the end and thought having rainbow hair sounded so cool! The I Am page was fun for my whole family as we each talked and wrote down the things that make us uniquely who we are. This subscription always does such an amazing job of bringing us together with our son to talk about so many important things. Looking into who you are, what makes you feel most like yourself, and why you are special is such an important lesson that I love going over with my son. Plus, we were obsessed with the bright sticker page! This book taught me so much, and I know that this will be a book that we turn to down the road for our kids.

  1. I understand and appreciate what this sub is trying to do, but it just seems like such a rip off. Paying $10 more than the cost of the book for some questions? Ridiculous.

    • Thanks so much for your feedback!

    • Well you got to think about the convenience of it being deliver to you.

      • Not really any more convenient than being delivered by Amazon for free…
