Little Feminist Book Club Box February 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!
This book really hit home for my family. My kids are a little over two years apart, and after being stuck inside for so many months they are starting to bicker. Most of the time I know that if my oldest would just play with his little sister she might not do all of the things she does to “annoy” him which are really just ways for her to get his attention. That being said, this book was such a fun way to show my son that having adventures with his sister might make things more fun and interesting! In the book we meet Iris, she loves to press the elevator button, but she gets really upset when one day her little brother gets to press it instead. After the elevator breaks, she finds the old button in the garbage and decides to take it and place it on her wall, only for it to turn into a gateway that leads to new places for her to discover. The book is in a comic-book style which my son really enjoyed. There aren’t a ton of words on each page, but that really allows us to fill in the blanks of the story (such a great way to pretend and use our imaginations). After a few adventures, Iris realizes that she wants to include her brother on her next journey. She brings him with her and oh, the things they discover! This was such a fun way to remind my son that it is ok to want to be alone sometimes and do your own thing, but sometimes his sister can be his greatest partner!
Iris loves to push the elevator buttons in her apartment building, but when it’s time to share the fun with a new member of the family, she’s pretty put out. That is, until the sudden appearance of a mysterious new button opens up entire realms of possibility, places where she can escape and explore on her own. But when she’s forced to choose between going at it alone or letting her little brother tag along, Iris finds that sharing a discovery with the people you love can be the most wonderful experience of all.Using their dynamic comics-inspired storytelling, acclaimed author Minh Lê and Caldecott Medal-winning artist Dan Santat carry readers on a journey of ups, downs, and twists and turns that will send hearts–and imaginations–soaring.
What Do You Think Card
Each book comes with a ‘What Do You Think’ card that provides questions that you can ask your little reader about the book. Each side is broken out by age, which I find so helpful. Since this is a comic-style book, there weren’t a ton of words which meant we really discovered and discussed what was going on throughout each page. These cards really helped to bring everything together and created thoughtful discussion for my son. I loved asking him what he likes to do when he needs some space from everyone, something we’re all feeling since we’ve been together at home so much over the past year. He said he loves going into his room and playing with his action figures, something that tends to calm him down. I also loved the question of where you would go right now if you could go anywhere. These questions are so thoughtful and truly bring the theme of the book together for little ones, but it is also a great way to have fun conversations and get some insight into your kiddo’s thoughts.
Little Feminist In Action: ‘Team Kids’ Mission
This month’s Little Feminist In Action page is a game that is meant to reduce sibling rivalry through kids’ cooperative play. Without even really knowing it, my kids developed a game with a similar theme to this that we play a lot. In the game, my husband and I are zombies and the kids have to run away from us and help each other if a zombie gets near them. The goal really is to turn the zombies into nice zombies. This page encourages families to develop a game where the kids team up against the adults to encourage siblings to work together which in turn helps remove competitive instincts. My kids fight a ton so any chance that I get to encourage bonding and teamwork is a win. I love the idea of developing a game where they have to be on the same team – go team kids!
Verdict: This month’s Little Feminist Book Club came at such a great time for my family! My kids are very close in age and this winter has really made everyone a little stir crazy, which means a lot of bickering between my kiddos. This month’s book really taught us about sibling rivalry and competition and how sometimes you have the most fun when you enjoy experiences together. This book was also visually amazing! It is a comic-book style and was so fun and engaging for us to read together. My son really enjoys comic books so he was instantly drawn to the illustrations, which I think really help to keep him engaged. We also received a fun game idea to encourage siblings to work together. I loved that this month really focused on family and how to pretend together more. Winter can be difficult for kids but add not being able to go anywhere at all and it can become even worse. I loved that this book focused not only on playing make-believe, but it showed my son that the best adventures can happen with his sister by his side. This box is such a great way to discover books that you might not know about otherwise, and they always come with such an amazing message. This box is one that I am always recommending to my fellow mom friends.
