Little Feminist Book Club Box July 2021 Review
I received this welcome card introducing this month’s book. 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!
Fox is always excited for this box to arrive! It will never get old hearing him ask, “Oh, is that a new book for me?!”
This book was very sweet! We are introduced to Daisy who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her Yeh-Yeh who is visiting for the first time from China. She quickly finds that she can’t seem to break through his “grumpy” exterior no matter how hard she tries. Daisy just wants her Yeh-Yeh to play with her, giggle, and hug, but it seems that there might be more differences between them. After talking to her Mom, Daisy is trying to understand that some people show their love in different ways. She quickly discovers that her Yeh-Yeh really does love her when she finds a drawing that she made for him in his room. He just had a different way of showing it. They then are able to connect through cooking a recipe from her Yeh-Yeh. She watches and learns in amazement. She finally hears him laugh, sees him smile, and gets one of the best big hugs. The book ends with a wonderful surprise for Daisy from her Yeh-Yeh.
This book was a great reminder of how everyone is different, some people show their emotions in different ways, but that doesn’t mean that someone doesn’t care about you. It also showed how there are so many different family dynamics. My son thought the story was fun and he was so happy that it ended with Daisy feeling happy. However, my son is so lucky to have his Grandma and Grandpa (Numma and PopPop) living three minutes down the road from him. He sees them often, they are obsessed with him and are rarely grumpy. So I don’t think he really connected to the story as much as he normally does. We were able to have a great discussion about families and how lucky we are to have so much of our family close by. Not everyone can say that and that creates different dynamics, especially around holidays. Even though this wasn’t a huge winner for Fox, he still really enjoyed learning about Daisy and how she tried to make her Yeh-Yeh smile.
Daisy’s Yeh-Yeh is visiting for the first time from China, and Daisy is so excited to meet him! She has big plans for all the fun they’ll have together, like tea parties and snow angels, but when Yeh-Yeh arrives, Daisy finds him less jolly than she imagined. Throughout the week, she tries all sorts of things to get him past his grumpiness. Will she be able to make him smile before he goes home?
Kids will love this funny and heartwarming story about overcoming cultural differences and connecting across generations!
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. One question really struck me when I first looked at this month’s cards. It asked if there was a time when things didn’t go as planned and what did you do? I am a planner and I often don’t do well when things don’t go just right. My husband always reminds me to be calm and to show our kids that life happens and we sometimes have to laugh and roll with it. So this question that is supposed to be for our kiddos made me really think about things. I loved talking with Fox about this and how we can handle it when things don’t go as planned. I also loved asking Fox how the people he loves show him love and how he shows others love. Every day I like to remind both of my kids that we should try to do one nice thing for someone every day if we can. It can be big or small, so even just waving and smiling at someone I tell them can warm someone’s day. This question really reminded me of that and brought on more great conversations with Fox on how we can show people how much we love and appreciate them, in a big or small way.
Little Feminist In Action: Our Favorite Things Together
This month’s Little Feminist In Action page is probably one of my favorites! It is called “Our Favorite Things Together.” At the end of the book, we get to see a list of things that Daisy wants to do with her Yeh-Yeh when she goes to visit him in China. On this activity sheet, you can write or draw all of the things that you want to do with the people that you love. It recommends putting the sheet in your room or on the fridge so that you remember to schedule all of the things that you want to do with each person that you love. My son has been trying to have a sleepover with my parents, but he usually doesn’t make it to bedtime before he gets nervous and asks to come home. I was really surprised to see though that he added that to his list of things he wants to do. So maybe we will give that a try again! He also really wants to finally go to Kennywood with his Daddy, so maybe we will schedule that before school starts. I love how these activity pages always give me a glimpse into Fox’s thoughts and wishes.
Verdict: This month’s Little Feminist Book Club was such a sweet book! My son loved learning about Daisy and her family. While he didn’t seem to connect with this story as much as he normally does, it was a great way for us to discuss different family dynamics. Not everyone gets to live down the street from their grandparents and that can make building relationships tricky. We really loved this month’s What Do You Think card because it taught both of us an important lesson. The activity page was another sweet way to bring the book to life by listing all of the things we want to do with the people we love, just like Daisy. My son Fox is obsessed with books, but they aren’t something that we are constantly browsing for and purchasing when we are at the store. This subscription allows us to constantly fill his bookshelf with new and exciting books that also help to teach him about the world around him. This is a subscription that I know we are going to love for years to come!
