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

 

We're introduced to this month's book with great fanfare, told that all 7 of the book-selecting team at Little Feminist shares enthusiasm for this title. It's a book about community and its lyrical text is actually a song. More on that momentarily! The back of the welcome note features the activity of the box. It's three popsicles ("paleteros") that can be colored and cut out and passed along to someone in your neighborhood. This feels especially fitting for us because for several years a young girl on our street had a homemade popsicle stand.

Paletero Man/¡Que Paletero tan Cool! by Lucky Diaz (Author), Micah Player (Illustrator), Dr. Carmen Tafolla (Translator) — Retail Value $17.99

 

You can see from these little glimpses I've shown that this book is bursting with color and movement. Little Feminist chose to include the bilingual edition, in both English and Spanish, to spark curiosity about another language and introduce exposure. We're all about it! My husband is more studied in Spanish and navigates pronunciation better than I do, but I always give it a try, and I think that's an important example for my child. The flowing words actually form a song! It's fun to read them in a sing-songy way, but if you're curious how it's meant to sound, you can listen to a full band recording here. You could even follow along to the recording with your book open in front of you, which is a fun and unique way to interact with a picture book. This one became a quick favorite in our family.

Discussion Questions

 

Little Feminist always provides a bookmark filled with discussion questions for each book included in the box. When we first began receiving this box, my daughter was two and her answers to the questions were often very abstract and vague. She just turned four and it's incredible to reflect on how her language and cognition has developed. If she doesn't know the answer to one of the questions, we go back to the text and find it.

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

Value Breakdown: Little Feminist Book Club costs $25.90 per month, which includes the cost of shipping. Those familiar with this subscription will know that this isn't one to subscribe to if you're looking for a deal or a discount. It's an investment in the curation, activity, discussion questions, and honestly, even the welcome note is a really great touch to help me as a parent be primed on what to focus on as I read the month's book(s) to my kid. This month we were sent one book that costs $17.99. The extras end up costing $7.91. That may not be for everyone, but it feels worth it to me.

Key Takeaways

I love that this month's Little Feminist selection is bright, lyrical, bustling, and offers exposure to Spanish. We've had a blast reading this book, and its message of spreading kindness through one's community comes with perfect timing as we spend the last of our long days outdoors before school begins.

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.
