While Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is being marketing to African-American children, everyone will benefit from reading these inspiring stories. Every vocation and sport is included here. There are LGBTQ+, bi-racial women, and various nations represented as well as the Muslim faith.
Each of the 100 biographies is a page long. Each bio is followed by a bright and beautiful illustration of the bio’s subject. The stories range from a 17th century African queen to a current bi-racial tennis star. Most of the illustrations include a quote from the person too. My favorite is from the late Toni Morrison and shown below.
“If you find a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.“
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a great book sure to inspire your child to pursue her (or his) goals. You may accidently find yourself getting inspired too. 4.5 stars!
Thanks to Rebel Girls and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
