Lose the Cape: The Mom's Guide to Becoming Socially & Politically Engaged (& How to Raise Tiny Activists) by Alexa Bigwarfe and Nancy Cavillones is an engaging book that tackles topics of advocacy, social activism, social change, social justice, and being a social justice warrior. The book covers various subjects from mothers who are actively involved socially/and or politically by speaking up, advocating for the cause, and taking part in the process of making lasting change. Children always learn from what adults model for them, and to help them become enterprising and positive adults they should be guided properly. The authors give simple tools and techniques to get motivated for involvement in social and political change. Learn more about ideas, suggestions, activities, and resources when it comes to deciding how to get involved.

The topic is interesting and the authors have an unconventional approach to it, helping readers move towards making changes in a positive way. It is important to raise kids in times where they are socially and politically aware of the problems that exist in the community and society. The authors also share personal stories which make it easy for readers to connect and will help them perceive the concept of volunteerism and social action in a new way so that they can create harmony and justice in the future. The book creates awareness in readers about the important role mothers and daughters play and need to play in elevating society and the system they are living in. The writing style is simple and neat, making it easy for readers to comprehend the message the authors convey.
