First Impressions


Little Feminist Book Club items come in a distinctive cardboard holder with drawings on it. In addition to the book(s), Little Feminist includes an introduction to the book (which has an activity on the reverse side – see below) and a bookmark with thought-provoking questions.

What's Inside The Box

Tree Whispers: A forest of poems by Mandy Ross - Retail Value $9.99


This book was exactly what its name suggests: poems about trees. Many aspects of trees, like Count My Rings, City Trees, or Snow Forest. My daughter was partial to the Tree's Storm Song, which is all "swish-swoosh-creeeeeek." Then it translates into words. She mostly did the noises. I'm a big fan of trees and nature. We have a huge tree in our back yard that we love so much we gave it a name. We read some of the poems underneath it and I felt like it gave my daughter a little understanding and a time to think. So this book was a big hit for us ... mostly me.

Note: The publisher's website is overseas. If you're looking to buy in the US, here's an Amazon link.

From Child's Play Books:

"Our leaves rustle, Our roots whisper. If you were a tree, what would you whisper to me?"

Mandy Ross has been listening closely to the trees, from the willow to the eucalyptus, and the sycamore to the oak. These fascinating poems, beautifully illustrated by Juliana Oakley, imagine the songs they are singing to us and the verses they speak.

With a strong environmental message, the book awakens us to the rich, unique and irreplaceable biodiversity of tree life and the many species that depend on it - including ourselves.

All of Me Is Nature by Ashley Renee Jefferson - Retail Value $18.99


The second book in this month's installment is a one from Little Feminist itself. Not sure if this is a new development or I just missed it, but now Little Feminist Press is making its own books for this subscription. All of Me Is Nature is a picture book about our five senses. It's visually stimulating and asks your little one to think about the things they can sense. To be honest, it seems aimed for younger kiddos than the age group I review for, but we still enjoyed it. It's hardback.

From Little Feminist Press:

There is no better way to learn about our five main senses than stepping outside. Follow kids of all colors, genders, and ability levels, as they explore nature with their fingers, toes, noses, ears, and taste buds. Written as a sweet poem that will become an anthem for all nature explorations, these beautiful full-color photographs show how we can sense and experience nature everywhere.

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 you and your little one to take a hike. You are asked to go on a nature hike and play I-Spy or do a scavenger hunt. You can also list all the things you used your senses to see, touch, etc. I admit that we did not actually do this during an actual hike. However, we recently spent a whole day outside and we remembered all the things we did and saw and tasted. It was still a very fun exercise.

The Verdict

For the first time I can remember with Little Feminist Book Club, we got two books and no stories. Both books were lyrical and vivid. I loved, loved, loved the tree poems. It was beautiful, thoughtful, and colorful. I liked how many aspects of trees it thought of and how the poems were accessible by children. I'm going to keep this book forever. The nature book was nice. It's a book that should exist and will be enjoyed. However, call me cynical, it felt like a selfish move. Rather than use someone else's book that promotes Little Feminist's crusade, they made their own half-hearted toddler book and slapped a $20 price tag on it. Don't get me wrong, it's nice and you'll love it. It just seems like a way to pump up their value.

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

This is usually where I tell you 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 and the value comes in the quality of books and their message. However, this is the first installment in a year and a half that I get to tell you the that value of the books is MORE than the cost ($26 including shipping). These books together retail for $29. This is also the first time there has been a Little Feminist book. If you have been waiting for this subscription to pay for itself in retail value, this may be time to jump on the bandwagon. There are several other books in the Little Feminist gift shop I expect we'll see soon.

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.
