Why Work at Little Feminist
Little Feminist (littlefeminist.com) is a book subscription (for 0-9-year-olds) that features strong female characters and Black, Indigenous, people of color because the majority of children’s books don’t. Book publishers say they aren’t publishing diverse books because of low demand. We see infinite demand, and we’re working with teachers, librarians, parents, and kids to create the best children’s book club ever.
