This month included an activity sheet and a welcome sheet introducing this month's contents. This month's Little Feminist In Action activity is called "Hina's Night Sky". This activity involves cutting out the stars and hiding them for your little ones to seek.
What's Inside This Box
Hina by Gabrielle Ahulu'i – Retail Value $7.95
Hina is a sweet title about a girl seeking peace, a theme I can absolutely relate to. She ends up climbing a rainbow to the moon, the ultimate serene environment, where she stargazes and watches over her tiny island from above. This book has unique and beautiful illustrations, and I think it tells an inspiring tale of a brave girl setting out to find her own happiness; that is definitely a message I aim to teach my daughter.
Where Are The Eggs? by Grace Lin – Retail Value $7.99
Mei is gathering eggs in her yard, and she walks you through where she finds them. This book is a good tool to teach spacial relationships, a skill I really need to practice with my toddler who can never find a thing.
Little Feminist Book Club included discussion cards for each book. The messages this month revolve around folklore and direction. While we don't have folklore that's been passed down in our family, Ronan has been obsessed with his monster book which talks about monsters and their origin stories from around the world. As far as direction goes, Ro is a lost cause at this point, mostly because he likes to be silly, but I have high hopes that his sister will be a good listener.
Little Feminist Book Club had two great selections this month. Ro and Win enjoyed finding the eggs in Where Are The Eggs?, and of course, Ronan loved it in Hina when she climbed up the rainbow to the moon. Both books are solid finds, and I am glad I have this subscription to introduce me to books that are more diverse and inclusive.
After shipping, this subscription adds up to $25.90 a month; if you don't mind paying the price for excellent curation and content, then this subscription may be worth your investment. The subscription holds a value that doesn't always monetarily meet its cost, but I appreciate the service.
