This box was sent to us at no cost to review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Opening The Box

 

Little Feminist sends their books in an envelope-style box. Packed snugly inside are the book of the month, a welcome note and activity, and a bookmark with discussion questions listed on the front and back.

Here's What's Inside

Welcome Note & Activity

 

The March welcome note gets us oriented with a preview of what's in our box. The first book included is a large board book that takes us through the alphabet with inclusive, inspiring terms and concepts. The second book included this month is a pre-release of a book being published by Little Feminist! When it's released in October 2022, it'll be a board book, but what we were sent in our box is more of a booklet.

On the back of the welcome note is this month's activity. It's an exercise in identifying what makes your child special. In the space provided, you're meant to trace your child's hand and then work with them to choose things they love about themself.

Little Feminist activity March 2022

My three-year-old daughter, Lorelai, enjoyed doing her own so much that she wanted to include the rest of the family in the activity. She traced my hand and "wrote" my responses on each of the fingers, then we drew a tiny hand to represent her baby sister's, and Lorelai came up with answers she thought her baby sister might choose. Papa's hand was too big to fit on the remaining pockets of blank space on this page!

ABC Let's Celebrate You & Me by Sugar Snap Studio — Retail Value $16.99 (found on sale here for $13.86)

 

This alphabet book is incredibly sweet. Each of the letters represents a different quality or concept that is positive and universal. As the welcome note points out, the various ways that this book celebrates children are specific enough that everyone can relate to each item in some way, but general enough that nobody will feel othered. Each trait (like kindness and respect) is something for children to aspire to embody, each body part (like noses and grins) are presented with ways they can be used positively, and the cracks are filled in with other virtuous words (like actions and "eXercise") that everyone can partake in in their own ways. The book is also filled with tons of colorful illustrations of all shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities of children. My daughter noticed two children in the book who have the skin condition called vitiligo—she found it intriguing and beautiful, and it was a great learning opportunity for her.

Pre-release: We Are Little Feminists: Celebrations by Brook Sitgraves Turner (author)  — Future Retail Value $9.99

 

The pre-release book we were sent is centered around celebrations of various holidays and faiths, including those that are both cultural and religious. It's filled with actual photographs of children and families partaking in various ways, and it's almost like looking through a photo album. I appreciate that each page has a small purple box with an indication of what is being observed in its picture. The text of the book was my least favorite part about it—the words themselves are fine and nice, but they're so spread out over the pages, seemingly with some missing punctuation to help us anticipate what tone to use as we turn the page, and it made it challenging to read in a way that kept my daughter's attention. But, for us, the text of the book was sort of secondary to the photos, so we enjoyed having our own conversation around it more anyway.

I also like the detail under the front cover that suggests we hand this book down. While in its pre-release form it's not as durable as the board book it'll be post-release (here we were sent a paperback booklet with a stapled spine), it can still be read and explored over and over again. I like the idea of several children's names filling the lines as sort of a log of who owned this book over the years.

Discussion Questions

 

Always such a fun part of this subscription are the provided discussion questions. Since there were two books sent this month, we were given two bookmark-style cards with discussion questions. They really do make my daughter think and they always lead to a laugh—it's true that kids say the darnedest things!

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $22.95 per month + $2.95 US shipping. Save with longer subscriptions. 

Value Breakdown: Little Feminist Book Club's monthly subscription costs $25.90 per month, including the cost of shipping. This month's board book costs $16.99 from a bookstore or $13.86 on sale. The other book we received was a stapled-spine paperback booklet...when it is released in October 2022 in board book form, it will retail $9.99, and while we really enjoyed this book, I would not say it has a $9.99 value given the materials used. If we were to do some mental gymnastics and consider the books at their full cost of $16.99 and $9.99, that adds up to $26.98, which would make this the first month the value has ever broken even since I've been receiving Little Feminist. But if you consider the $13.86 sale price of the board book and the lower durability materials of the booklet, it doesn't quite reach the monthly cost. Do the curation, monthly activity, and discussion questions add value? Absolutely, and I really enjoy those aspects of this box, which is what keeps me coming back. But if you're looking for a children's book subscription that has very obvious, outright dollar value, know that this one is consistently a little low.

Key Takeaways

Kid looking down at open Little Feminist book

My family is happy to welcome the two books from this month's box to our collection. If there is such thing as a children's version of coffee table books, these two would fall under that category, as they're fun for my daughter to browse and observe—maybe even more so than it is for her to experience them read aloud.

Hi there, I'm Christen! I've been writing with MSA since 2017. I am all sorts of things: a writer, a mother, an outdoors-lover, a low-maintenance self-carer, and general hungry person.

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in colors and silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.
