So many ways to see success

I love the Rebel Girls anthologies. They provide so many relatable examples of ways ordinary people can impact the world. My younger daughter's copies of these are annotated with sticky notes marking which ones she's read. I love her having access to so many examples of women and girls with agency, making their marks on the world. These books are great for boys and girls.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This lively, kid-friendly collection of stories about bold female innovators and barrier breakers is informative, entertaining, and inspiring. The brief biographical sketches are quick and easy to read (many start with "Once upon a time ...") and full of fun facts to spark the interest of young readers. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 makes a wonderful read-aloud, perfect for savoring a few stories at a time. But strong independent readers, both girls and boys, may devour the whole book swiftly on their own, since the stories are so fascinating and the accompanying portraits so compelling.

Positive messages abound in these inspiring profiles, with takeaways like follow your dreams, don't take no for an answer, and you can be whatever you want to be if you work hard, never give up, and don't listen to anyone who tells you that you can't do something because you're a girl.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
