Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a children’s book packed with 100 bedtime stories about the life of 100 extraordinary women from the past and the present, illustrated by 60 female artists from all over the world. This book inspires girls with the stories of great women, from Elizabeth I to Serena Williams.

When I first saw Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls show up at my library, I knew that I had to read it. For the most part, I really enjoyed it. It’s a very quick read filled with stories about inspirational women throughout history. Women who’ve accomplished a wide variety of things are included, though it could’ve probably been a bit more diverse. (Most women included are American or European, but there is a second volume out now and maybe that’s a bit better.)

I think this would be a perfect gift for a young girl (or boy! boys should know about important women, too!) and I want to buy a copy for my niece and nephew when they get a little older.

Goodreads summer reading challenge: you have a lovely accent *

* I actually can’t find anything that tells me definitively whether this is a book that’s been translated to English, but Goodreads lists the original title as “Storie della buonanotte per bambine ribelli: 100 vite di donne straordinarie,” so I’m thinking it’s a pretty safe bet?


Do you ever read children’s books? Do you have little kids in your life?
