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

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

 

This month's theme is "waiting." Waiting is difficult for everyone but especially children, and this book shows what one child and her dad do to pass the time throughout the day. The activity on the back is a recipe for homemade play dough. The only ingredient that may not be readily available in your pantry (unless you've made play dough before) is cream of tartar, but it can be found in most grocery stores.

Dad Bakes by Katie Yamasaki — Retail Value $17.95 (found on sale here for $13.88)

 

The author of this book is a mural artist, and I found it cool to see how her art style translated to the book format. The text is simple and the art really does a lot of the conveying of the storyline. We're walked through a dad's morning as he goes to work as a baker. When he returns home, his daughter is just waking up and she is shown waiting while her dad naps, and then they make dough together and pass the time in different ways while the dough rises. It gives a lot of great ideas for what to do while waiting!

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?

Value Breakdown: Little Feminist Book Club costs $25.90 per month, which includes the cost of shipping. Not uncommon for this subscription, the cost of what's inside the box is lower than the cost of the subscription itself. But the curation, activity, and discussion questions hold value, so it usually feels worth it to me. This month the one included book costs $17.95 at full price or $13.88 from Amazon. That places the extras at a $7.95-$12.02 value. That feels steep to me this month, especially since the play dough activity recipe is simply an idea and you have to source all your own ingredients for it. I'll be curious to see if next month is a better value.

Key Takeaways

I am always looking for ways to help my almost-four-year-old occupy herself while she waits for various things—in lines, for food to be ready, and more. This book gives some great ideas for how to pass the time while waiting, and celebrates the time spent alone or together with someone you love until your time to wait is up.

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 earth tones and flowy 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.
