We have three young boys and we are working towards building in them a sense of global awareness, as well as a sense of compassion for others. We want them to experience and really get to know other cultures and traditions. We are loving Little Global Citizens! The Sibling Add-On is a great thing! The crafts are so great, that all my boys want to participate. The books are lovely and foster additional curiosity and questions, as well as tell great stories about the current topic. I highly recommend this box for ALL families!
I also wanted to add that I had thought that I ordered the sibling add-on for the whole year, but I had only done one box. Akeelah was wonderful at responding and very generous and helpful!
We have loved our boxes. I have 4 kids ages range from 10-2, and I love that they can all participate with the contents of the boxes. So much fun and creativity. We love the recipes, crafts and books. Thank you Little Global Citizens for creating something my whole family can enjoy as we learn about new countries and cultures.
When my kids (5 & 2) see this box on the front porch, they do a little dance! That dance is then followed by a shriek of joy. It's amazing how much information LGC manages to pack into a small box. From the activities to the new box that goes into our nightly rotation. The activities are engaging and entertaining - my 5yo absorbs all of the information about each new country intently. It is a full family fun activity from the moment it arrives!
We love getting our Little Global Citizens box. There are crafts for both boys (7 + 5) and the book is always so wonderful and informative. We love the personal touch of the story of a child from that country - it makes it very relatable. They are well-timed also, we loved getting China this month as it ties in so nicely with the Chinese New Year! The holiday box was also a lot of fun. It's a great way to spend time with our boys and help them understand the world.
We love getting our LGC box. When my kiddos get it they are so excited (they LOVE when it shows up on the door step like a special delivery). My 5 year old genuinely loves the crafts and it gives enough activities to space out over time, so he never feels overwhelmed and always takes something away. His awareness of “the world” has grown so much since ordering Little Global Citizens. My nearly three year old has started to show interest too and benifits from the book in each box. I love that they have a sibling “add on” so getting the box for both of them is easy.
I have been getting the Little Global Citizens subscription box for a few months now. I must say that I can already see the awareness it has created in my kids. My daughter is three and my son is five. The other day I was driving my kids to daycare and my son starts making a random complaint about some piece of candy that his sister got and he never did. I wasn't sure what he was referring to but I took this opportunity to talk with him about other children who may never get to try candy and how fortunate he is to have all that he does. He was quiet for a bit and then, all on his own, he said to me, "Momma, I want to buy clothes and shoes for those kids who may not have any." I was so proud that he thought to do something for the less fortunate all on his own. Because of this subscription box having conversations about other children's realities is always top of mind. I also feel it has certainly opened his eyes as well. As an added twist to this story, I told his pre-k teacher about it and now we are making it a whole class project and will send a box of goods to those less fortunate. It's a small gesture but I know it is having a BIG impact on my son, his class, and those kids we will be giving these items to. Thank...
This box has sparked a creative side to my 3 year old son that makes me so happy! But besides the book, the crafts, the activities that come in this box, my most favorite part is the recipes that come included. I have LGC to thank! Because he truly enjoyed learning about Thailand, and making the mango sticky rice, he will actually eat Thai food when we order it. He used to refuse to try anything new. This is truly one of the best subscription boxes I have gotten for my son. Give it a try!
Of all the gifts my son has received, this is THE BEST GIFT ever!
Every month, he rushes home, so excited to find his Little Global Citizens box waiting for him.
He can't wait to dive in and see what country it's all about.
He LOVES reading about life from the perspective of another child in the Children's Guide & even talks about sending letters to his new "friends". We get straight into the crafts and activities and love the quality time it gives us together, while he learns the all important skills of empathy & understanding life from the perspective of someone in another country.
We spend hours crafting, playing the games and reading and re-reading the beautiful book that comes in each box.
He takes his "souvenir" into school for Sharing Day and loves showing all his new knowledge about each different country to his friends. He's become so confident!
As a busy working mother, I love that it's a super convenient way to teach him about other countries and cultures of the world, which is going to be so important to him as he grows up.
It's all packaged up so nicely and in such a fun way for him to learn. There's so much stuff in each box; it takes all the hard work out of it for me.
Can't wait to see what country we learn about next.......
My girls, 4 and 6, love this box and I'm right there with them. The activities (especially the art projects) keep them engaged for a good chunk of time, the books have been super-high quality, and the accompanying parents guide has taught me more than a few things. Whenever our box arrives we get out our globe, talk about our world, and dream big. We've had a lot of fun learning words in new languages too. Definitely recommend the siblings add-on as this has prevented squabbling!
Little Global Citizens Company is a huge hit with my 3 year old daughter. She gets so excited every time the box arrives. It is full on information to help guide the parents and children through all the learning activities. It is so cool for me to be able to share all these amazing places and cultures with my child. We both love reading the books that is included with every box! We are building our own little cultural library! There is so much thought put into every detail of this box. So much to learn and teach our children! Such a wonderful company and idea to help bring a little piece of this big world into our home!
