Little Feminist Book Club is a monthly book subscription box for kids ages newborn to 9 years old. Each month you will receive one to two books to help diversify your bookshelf. Plus, you will also receive hands-on activities and tools to help your book come to life. Subscriptions are offered for ages 0-2, 2-4, 4-7, and 7-9. From Little Feminist:

Only 31% of children’s books feature a female character, and only 13% feature a person of color.

This children’s book subscription sends books that highlight lesser-represented characters and teaches important life lessons with beauty and nuance.

This review is of the Book Club for ages 2-4 years.

Little Feminist Book Club Ages 2-4 June 2021 Review

Little Feminist recently made a change to their age range offerings, which included the addition of a new club for children ages 2-4. On their website it says that some months they’ll send a single picture book; others, they’ll send two board books. My daughter, Lorelai, is approaching 3. This month she received one picture book.

 

The book arrived in a slim cardboard box, with this sheet of cardstock that’s printed with June’s welcome note. The note suggests this children’s story about a bird living free is a good example of liberation and a way to start the conversation of others (including people) living in freedom. On the back is a little activity to do with your child. It has two columns printed with the headers “Lives Free” and “Keep.” Together, you’re meant to write or draw things that fall into each category. You’re given a few examples like bird, cloud, book, pencil, human, and elephant to start and are encouraged to come up with your own as well.

Little Feminist 2-4 June 2021 activity

My daughter loved this activity, and at almost 3 years old she totally understood the ask. She had an easier time with placing some words than others, but I think the idea is more to open discussion than to be right or wrong. For example, with “cat” she chose “keep” because we have a pet cat. But we did discuss that our cat comes and goes as he pleases and that some cats live in the wild. We came up with lots of ideas and I drew a few, then she wanted to take over. Some of it looks like scribbles but she knew exactly what she was drawing!

 

Bird House by Blanca Gómez – Retail value $17.99 (found on sale here for $14.79)

This children’s book is very understated—both the text and the illustrations. It just goes to show that there needn’t be a big, harrowing adventure to capture a child’s imagination. The storyline is simple: the child and their Abuela find an injured bird, nurse it back to health, and then set it free. The lesson is that the bird isn’t the child’s to keep, but that it can come back and visit anytime. (You’ll have to read the book to see what they do to make their space inviting to the bird and whether it comes back to visit!) I suppose some might take issue with the idea that the Abuela tended to the bird’s injury herself, rather than leaving it to professionals, but that really isn’t the focus of the story. To me, it seemed sweet.

 

I’m glad to see the discussion questions back after missing them last month. On one side of this bookmarker, there are questions about the story itself, like, “How do you think the bird felt as it left Abuela’s window?” On the other side, there are questions asking your child to put themselves in the scenarios of the book, like, “What would you do if you found an injured bird in your neighborhood?” These discussion questions are always fun with a toddler, and as always, I got a mix of serious and silly responses from my daughter.

Verdict: My family really enjoyed this month’s Little Feminist selection for ages 2-4. Not only did it open dialogue about a healthy understanding of the animals we share our neighborhood with, but it was also a great jumping-off point to talk about greater issues of humanity and freedom. Of course with a toddler, that type of conversation is broad and brief, but it was helpful for me as a parent to be provided with an age-appropriate story to introduce these concepts to my child.

This subscription costs $25.90 ($22.95 per month + $2.95 shipping). This book, purchased full-price, costs $17.99. On Amazon, it costs $14.79. As is always the case with Little Feminist, there is value in the book selection, discussion questions, and activity which makes the cost feel more worth it. I also find great value in the theme of the month as a parent—while there is no specific guidance for how parents should tackle the larger social issues that each month’s book selection is meant to represent, it’s great to be given ideas of topics I should be exploring with my kid. 

To Wrap Up: 

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you’ll likely receive the July box. From Little Feminist:

Once you purchase a book subscription your first box will be shipped within a week. From then on, your book box will be sent the first week of every month.
