First Impressions

What's Inside The Box

The Rainbow Parade by Emily Neilson - Retail Value $18.99


The story is about a girl named Emily, who, with her Mama and Mommy, goes to a Pride parade. Em is enamored by the colors, loudness, and, well, pride of everyone in the celebration and enjoying it from the sidewalk. When the LGBTQ+ family unit comes along, she see other families that are just like her's. Mama and Mommy jump the barrier to join, but Em is apprehensive. She doesn't feel loud or proud enough to be part of the parade. Her parents say she belongs just the way she is and that pride comes with time and practice. That is something they will do together every day.

My daughter never wanted to read a new book so rabidly. The title is two of her favorite things and I think her imagination got the best of her. I don't think the book matched her imagination, but she enjoyed it all the same. She enjoyed the pages showing what everyone was wearing. In particular, there is someone wearing nothing at all (It's very family friendly), and she got a real hoot out of that. She immediately showed her brother and mother. I think the story was a little over her head, but we had a little talk about how families can be different and similar.

From Penguin Random House:

A sweet and celebratory story of a family’s first time at Pride.

One day in June, Mommy, Mama, and Emily take the train into the city to watch the Rainbow Parade. The three of them love how all the people in the street are so loud, proud, and colorful, but when Mama suggests they join the parade, Emily feels nervous. Standing on the sidewalkis one thing, but walking in the parade? Surely that takes something special. This joyful and affirming picture book about a family’s first Pride parade, reminds all readers that sometimes pride takes practice and there’s no “one way” to be a part of the LGBTQ+ community.

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. They are nice in the way they help you ask direct questions– something that might actually get a real answer rather than "It was good" or "I liked it."

Little Feminist In Action


This month's activity asks your little one to design a Pride flag. Her imagination is very colorful in the first place, so this was right up her alley.

The Verdict

It took a little coaxing to get my daughter to catch on to this installment of Little Feminist Book Club. She just saw a girl going to a parade and jumping in. There were a lot of colorful details that she noticed, like man with a beard in a dress or people dressed as animals. I asked her what she would wear to such a parade and she said, "I'd go naked." So that gives you an idea of how silly she was being during the questions. Although the larger picture was missed, we enjoyed this book and I think it will be one we revisit for the visuals. That will give me more chances to talk to her about families, Pride, and why going to a parade naked isn't the best idea.

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

Subscribers – current or future – will have to be understanding of the fact that Little Feminist Book Club is not a subscription that saves you money. The cost of the sub will always be a little more than the book itself. This subscription's true value is the quality of the books and the complementary paperwork, which is carefully chosen and sent to your front door. If you are focused on dollar amounts, this subscription may not be for you. The monthly subscription costs $26 (with shipping). This book retails for about $19. That is a $7 difference in value. That's pretty good for these sub.

One thing to note: Little Feminist offers four ways to purchase: monthly, three months, six months, and 12 months. They cost $22.95, $21.95, $19.95, and $18.95, respectively. Shipping is always $2.95. So if you were certain you'd like this subscription for a year, it would be $4 cheaper per month and much closer to the book's retail value.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You have to order before the 25th to receive that month’s selection. From Little Feminist:

Once you purchase a book subscription your first box will be shipped within a week. From then on, your book box will be sent the first week of every month.
