This book club kit is a great resource! It includes additional resources, how to support indigenous communities, and more book recommendations by indigenous authors. I enjoyed the author interview and getting more information about the author and the book. This kit will be a great resource for book clubs!

I loved the design of this kit and how it complimented the book cover. The author's interview was very interesting especially as she is a debut author. The book club questions would lead to some great discussions however I do wish there were some more interactive activities included. This would make a great companion to any book club meeting on Firekeeper's Daughter.

Before reading this kit, I hadn't heard of Firekeeper's Daughter however now it is firmly on my TBR!

This is a really nice addition to the book, love the bookmarks, though I think they could have been better quality (font was a little blury). I liked that they gave gave additional information like the book club discussion guide.

This debut novel was something I devoured rapidly, and I wished I would have used this for my coworkers book club, as they just did this novel. This has an author interview, bookmarks, a discussion guide, and further reading and resources for the indigenous community, and authors.

I truly wish that every book out there had one of these guides available for it! As a librarian and member of multiple book clubs, it isn't uncommon to have that last minute scramble to think of discussion questions. These kits take the pressure off of the host because it provides all that and more! I love that they include content warnings as different people have different triggers. I also like that the kit provides suggestions for other books written by indigenous authors, ways to support indigenous communities, and contact information for individuals who may have experienced a crisis. I feel that the more this info is put out there, the more people will benefit from those services!

I know it seems a bit trivial after the important information that was included, but I do find myself missing the playlist and recipe from this particular guide. I feel that would have been a fantastic way to add some additional cultural aspects to the kit.

Thank you to NetGalley and We are Bookish for providing me with a free kit in exchange for my honest review!

Nice kit for a book club! The interview with the author is really insightful and the suggestion of topics to discuss in the book club is varied and interesting. I would recommend this to book clubs and managers of book clubs, as well as high school teachers if they are giving this book to their students for study (it has interesting topics to discuss in class)

I thought the book club kit was great. It is really useful for any book club to build their get together around. I really enjoyed the letter and interview from the author. The inclusion of the BEAUTIFUL cover theme throughout was a nice touch.

For me there was just something missing. The discussion guide provided wasn’t thought provoking enough.

The Firekeeper's Daughter is one of the books that has been chosen for the coming months for my book club. This kit will be a great resource to help further the discussion surrounding the book and the author. The kit would also be a great resource for schools and libraries to allow them to generate more interest in the book.

This was such a great book kit. I am a mod for a book club and we read this book. This kit made the buddy read just that much more fun. The book marks were a hit. The books to read after this was great. The interview was fun. We loved the discussion questions. Thank you to NetGalley and We Are Bookish for this in exchange of my honest review.

The book club kit is a very useful tool including resources for this book's fans. It adds to the experience and I'd love to see more kits being available!

The Book Club Kits are fabulous tools to enrich your reading experience. They provide questions that make you reflect more on what you've read and points to discuss in a book club to hear different thoughts and explore further. Even if you're not in a book club, you can use it to ponder on some aspects of the book that you may have missed or wouldn't have lingered on when you read it. If you want to get more out of a book, the book club kit will act as a wonderful learning tool. Highly recommended.

Like the other book club kits by We Are Bookish, this kit went above and beyond in providing content and resources. I especially loved the content warning at the beginning, because I like to warn readers before we start reading a book about possible triggers. This allows them to be well-informed and decide whether or not they want to read and discuss the book for that particular month. I also enjoyed the "Support Indigenous Communities" and "Additional Resources" sections and they provided extra content that I believe is a valuable addition to the story.

The one thing that I felt was missing was some of the content that is in other book club kits such as the quizzes, music playlists, food recommendations, etc. I know some people might not feel comfortable curating that based on the nature of the story, but I always enjoy those aspects as I feel like it enhances the overall experience of a book club.

What a gem! Firekeeper's Daughter is one of my all time favorite books and I am so excited to use this book club kit to enrich my discussions of this novel. I love the interview with the author, appreciate the book recommendations, and love the printable bookmarks! Thank you We Are Bookish!!

I did a mistake requesting this, I thought it was the book itself, not a book club kit. So I haven’t used it, but it looks very nice!

A great exploration of Native American culture, traditions and worldbuilding.
Add the relationship dynamics and drama, this was an interesting and overall fun read.

Loved the way this was designed and seeing right into some of the author’s thoughts was such a nice experience.

Excellent book club kit! The printable bookmarks are a great idea. Loved reading the authors responses to interview questions as it prompted me to reconsider parts of the book.

This book club kit was well thought out and put together. It not only included thoughtful questions, but also resources to support indigenous peoples. I appreciated that it included information on the author, other books by her/the publisher, and suggestions for books to read if you enjoyed this one. The only thing I would change would be making the font larger, as many pages seemed to be filled with small type.
