Goodnight stories for rebel girls is a marvellous book.
‘In an ideal world, not only would mothers read this aloud to their daughters, but teachers would read it to schoolboys’ Sunday Times
My daughter and I loved this books so much. My daughter is 10 and it is so wonderful to her to read about a myriad of women who are just wonderfully rebellious. The women written bout in the book are all real, all fabulous and all feisty.
From the gorgeous, wonderful Frida Kahlo who lived her life as an artist in a blaze of colour to the defiant, strong brave Rosa Parks who initiated a whole change of events that led to a huge civil rights movement for Black people in America.
Then we have the awesome astronomer Wang Zhenyi who figured our a lunar eclipse and brought science to the common people. Then to one of my absolute favourites, Maya Angelou, poet, activist and survivor.
This book is filled with stories and portraits of awesome women, pioneers from tattooists to computer scientists, models to explorers. Many of them had overcome huge issues to achieve their dreams. These stories make you cheer and we just loved them.
My son read them too and thought they were marvellous and I think it is wondeful for all children to see how strong and brave and pioneering women have and can be. Let’s smash those gender stereotypes.
What if the princess didn’t marry Prince Charming but instead went on to be an astronaut? What if the jealous step sisters were supportive and kind? And what if the queen was the one really in charge of the kingdom? Illustrated by sixty female artists from every corner of the globe, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls introduces us to one hundred remarkable women and their extraordinary lives, from Ada Lovelace to Malala, Amelia Earhart to Michelle Obama. Empowering, moving and inspirational, these are true fairy tales for heroines who definitely don’t need rescuing.
It’s a truly fabulous book. Book 2 will be out soon – so keep your eyes peeled for that too.
