Little Feminist Book Club Box January 2021 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!
I absolutely loved this book! When I first opened the box, my husband and I both said how this was great even for us because we both don’t know a ton about Ramadan. So not only was the book a lesson for our son Fox, but it helped to teach us about something new as well. Always learning, always growing! In this book, we meet Sophia and her family. She is taking part in celebrating her first Ramadan with her family as she joins the adults in fasting. The book lists all of the traditions for the family, from their very early breakfast to their celebration dinner. Sophia’s grandma tries to help encourage her to complete the fast, but quickly teaches her the other aspects of Ramadan that matter when Sophia gives in to her hunger. The writing is so detailed, the pictures are dazzling, and Sophia’s determination and love for her family and their traditions spills out throughout this entire story. I have read this with my son a few times already and we both absolutely love it! He had a ton of questions about Ramadan and was even a little worried that we were going to make him fast. I absolutely loved going on this journey with him as we all learned more about Ramadan. Another part of the book that I really appreciated was the detailed story about Ramadan at the end of the book!
Sophia wants to fast for Ramadan this year. Her grandma tells her that fasting helps make a person sparkly―and Sophia loves sparkles. But when her attempt at fasting fails, Sophia must find another way to participate. This lovely multigenerational family story explores the many ways to take part in the Ramadan holiday.
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 book brought up a lot of questions naturally from my son. Since he was so engaged, I found these cards to be even more helpful because I was able to keep his mind moving with these thoughtful questions for him. He really was curious about fasting and was even a little worried that he would have to fast soon, which is where the question of ‘what is something hard you’ve tried to do’ became handy. It was a great connection for him to make in his mind about how trying something hard can be scary, but the results are what make the challenges worth it. These cards are always my favorite part to the month because it really allows me to think deeper about the book and to get into my son’s brain a little more.
Little Feminist In Action: Good Deeds Calendar
This month’s Little Feminist In Action page is a bingo game of good deeds that you can do right at home! We learn in the book that Ramadan is a time to fill yourself with good and to give back to others. The bingo chart makes doing a good deed fun by turning it into a bit of a game, which I really love and is a great way to teach younger kiddos like my son. These deeds are things that they can do at home with the family around them, or maybe they could FaceTime a friend to practice a good deed. Teaching our kids how to serve our community is something that my husband and I really try to focus on. We can’t have them out and about doing good deeds in our community right now, but I love that this chart teaches them how to be kind right at home. This is such a great lesson!
Verdict: Little Feminist Book Club taught my entire family about Ramadan! Before this book, I really didn’t have a good grasp on the traditions of Ramadan so I was really excited to learn more. The book took us through a day with Sophia and her family as she tried to take part in her first fast for Ramadan. While she broke her fast, Sophia’s Grandma helped her to understand the other amazing meanings of Ramadan. How it is about filling your body with good, that you can focus on giving back and helping others instead of fasting. The book was so detailed with amazing artwork that really brought Sophia’s family to life right in front of us. My son was so engaged with the story and asked so many questions throughout, the true show of how amazing this book truly is! As always, this month’s thought cards and good deed bingo game were so helpful in bringing the story of Ramadan into our life. We were able to show Fox with the bingo game how easy it is to perform a good deed right at home. My Mom was at my house when I opened this box with my son Fox and she was amazed that a box like this existed! She mentioned how beautiful the book was and that it was so great that I was able to continue to build their collection with thoughtful books like this one. Stories that we can all read and love together that will last us so many years, maybe one day he will pass them along to his kids. That is what is so special to me about this box, it is about bringing diversity to his collection and creating thoughtful conversations through stories and characters. The box might seem small, but for me, the value is in receiving a book that is expertly selected for us to help broaden our world because if I am being honest, these books help me just as much as they help my son! This month was such a delight!
