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

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

 

June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, and it's no surprise that Little Feminist is celebrating it with representation in children's literature. This month's welcome note introduces this month's bursting-with-color book, Pride Puppy!, and goes on to recommend another title that follows a similar style and is on a similar topic: M is for Mustache by Catherine Hernandez (Author) and Marisa Firebaugh (Illustrator).

On the reverse is this month's activity, which familiarizes families with the history of the rainbow pride flag and offers a game of hiding the different pride flags around the house and letting your child find them, all while having a conversation about what each symbolizes.

Pride Puppy! by Robin Stevenson (Author), Julie McLaughlin (Illustrator) — Retail Value $19.95 (found on sale here for $15.17)

 

When my daughter and I pulled this book out of its box, we were excited to lay eyes on the bright, vivacious illustrations on the cover. With the name "Pride Puppy!," we figured a main character would be a dog, and that concept held thrilling intrigue. I admit our eagerness was deflated a bit when we opened the front cover to find we were holding another alphabet book. It was only three months ago that the age 2-4 tier of Little Feminist sent a different alphabet book, and that one wasn't the first we had spent time with. Perhaps it's because my daughter is nearing the older end of this level's age range, or maybe it's just a matter of personal preference, but we crave stories with strong narratives to read together. We delved in anyway and were pleased to find that in fact this book does weave a narrative of puppy misadventures into its alphabet-driven pages. It turned out to be quite cute. I also appreciate that as we follow this family of four (five with the dog) through their pride parade experience, we're served some realness, like feeling "hot" and "hungry" for letter H. Very accurate!

Little Feminist Ages 2-4 Subscription for June 2022

At the end of the book there's a fun activity built in. Each letter of the alphabet has a good many vocabulary words listed beside it, and on each's coordinating page of the book, we're to see if we can find the things among the illustrations. What a cool idea for keeping this book engaging, even on an occasion when a child might want to be more of a proactive participant.

Discussion Questions

 

Little Feminist always provides a bookmark filled with discussion questions for each book included in the box. They're a mix of questions to jog your kid's memory about the storyline, and questions that encourage your child to relate to the characters in the book.

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 costs $25.90 per month, which includes the cost of shipping. As is often the case for this subscription, the contents of the box retail at a lower cost than the subscription itself. This month, we were sent one book and it costs $19.95 full-price, or $15.17 on sale. That values the book selection, 2nd book recommendation, activity, and discussion questions at $4.95-$9.73. That feels more worth it some months than others, and this month since there's an additional activity build into the book itself, I am less bothered by the price difference.

Key Takeaways

I enjoy this subscription with my almost-four-year-old daughter. Our initial disappointment that Pride Puppy! is an alphabet book was diffused by our realization that there is a loose narrative woven into it. We enjoyed how bright and intricate the illustrations were, and especially enjoyed the search-and-find activity built into the end of the book!

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.
