This compelling addition to the Rebel Girls series diverges from the format of the previous books, all of which feature 100 women. By choosing to focus on just 25 women in Rebel Girls Lead, the creators have made a paperback book that's accessible and affordable for more families. Though the thicker, heftier, and more expensive Good Night Stories books are all wonderful, this new book can function as an introduction for readers new to the Rebel Girls series. Longtime fans, though, may be disappointed that only 11 of the 25 bios and portraits are new, while the others are culled from previous editions. Still, the winning formula of inspiring life story plus a bold, expressive portrait, shines just as brightly here in this slim volume as it does in the longer collections.

These bite-size profiles can help young readers imagine themselves growing up to do great things and be great people, and that's a good reason to gift this book to any kid who has yet to delve in to the Rebel Girls universe.

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.
