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

Looking Out for Sarah by Glenna Lang - Retail Value $7.95 (Paperback)


The book is a true tale about a black lab, Perry, who is a service dog to a woman, Sarah, who lost her sight as an adult. It tells the story of a day in the life of the Perry and how he follows commands, looks out for his owner, and resists snatching crumbs when he's on the job. Sarah visits a grocery store, school and park with the help of Perry, who recounts the smells along the way. During a nap, Perry dreams about the time he and Sarah walked from Boston to New York, a real-life adventure they did to show the world what a guide dog can do for a blind person.

My daughter dreams of having a dog ... also of being one. Pieces of this book has entered into her imagination and now she is acting like my seeing eye dog and, of course, sniffing for crumbs. The book was a big hit in that way. Now we are on the look out for seeing on in the wild. Anytime she sees a dog, she asks what it's for, which is good for starting conversation and thinking of other people.

From Charlesbridge:

A story of friendship, loyalty, and trust

Sarah and her guide dog, Perry, go about their busy day. Perry helps Sarah go shopping, to the post office, and take the train to school. Sarah, a blind musician and teacher, entertains the children and tells them about the time she and Perry walked from Boston to New York to show the world what a blind person can accomplish with the help of a guide dog like Perry.

This true story of an amazing black Labrador retriever and his owner will inspire young readers to follow their own dreams and give them the courage to achieve anything.

Expressive, stylized paintings in bold colors and simple shapes convey the extraordinary relationship between Sarah and Perry.

The Big Bike (Emma Every Day) - Retail Value $6.95 (Paperback)


Emma Every Day is a series of books about a little girl who is deaf. This book is about her getting a new, big bike. At first she is excited, but has a small wreck and is wary. Eventually, with the support of her older brother, she tries, tries again and is successful.

My daughter felt like she had a lot in common with Emma and how it's scary to get used to something new; even if you desire to do it in the first place. We loved, loved, loved the sign language guide and examples throughout the story. We spent A LOT of time learning signing. I think I may have liked it even more than her.

From Bookelicious:

Emma gets a bigger bike and can't wait to ride it, but when she falls off she's too scared to try it anymore. When her best friend, Izzie, comes over for a bike ride, Emma uses her old bike. Emma needs to practice on her new big bike and gain confidence to ride again--even if it is scary. Emma is Deaf and often uses sign language to communicate, and this early chapter book includes an ASL fingerspelling chart and a sign language guide.

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 listen to the sounds around you. How many can you hear. A good thought trying to get my daughter to calm down and pay attention, but any attempt to give her silence is immediately filled with a fart sound ... which we wrote down and then learned to sign. Very much her humor at the moment.

The Verdict

Both of these books form Little Feminist Book Club were home runs for my daughter and me. She already pretends to be a dog and "Looking Out for Sarah" gave her so many storylines and details to work with. Now I just have to pretend to be blind. "The Big Bike" was perfect, because I've always told her about sign language and this gave us the motivation to explore it a little. We taught our kids a little ASL as toddlers, which we haven't kept up with. This book makes me want to jump down the rabbit hole. Again, a solid effort from Little Feminist Book Club. I'd put this among my favorites, in terms of how engaged my kiddo was.

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 (including shipping). These books retail for about $15 together. That is a $9 difference in value and a little higher than usual. I'd like to see this sub close that gap a little more.

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.
