Little Justice Leaders is a great activity subscription for kids, especially when they’re starting to be aware of the world around them. This box provides kid-friendly explanations of various issues, which are always coupled with fun activities that make learning so much fun. This month, there are activity cards, a book, and even coloring materials, and my kids enjoyed all of them. They learned that being bilingual is a great thing and how respecting each other’s cultural differences makes the world a better place. The values that they learn from this box is truly priceless! We highly recommend this subscription for kids who are learning from home and for parents who want to teach their kids about social justice!
