Since the moment book one came out, I’ve had my eye on the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls books.
My daughter has always embraced her own uniqueness, from her hair to her style, and even the things she likes to do. She’s fearless and I can’t wait to see all the fun things she’s going to do in her life. I mean, just look at her…
You can’t put this kid in a box! As soon as I opened the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls book for her, I knew she’d be hooked. See, on each page there’s a story of another powerful woman who did incredible things in the world.
My daughter immediately recognized J.K. Rowling who wrote our favorite book series (and inspired my tattoo) but now she’s learned about inspirational women like Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, Dancer Carmen Amaya and so many more!
My daughter is thrilled to see so many amazing women brought to life between the pages of this book. Her whole face lights up when she reads about female inventors, scientists, pirates and revolutionaries.
My daughter has always been a big dreamer, but she’s often frustrated by the lack of representation in her favorite shows and movies. Sure, she can’t articulate it that way, but she’s often torn between wanting to imagine herself as the girl character in specific shows and movies, but also wants to imagine herself as the brilliant hero who is front and center in the story (and also usually a boy).
That’s one thing I’ve loved about having this book, it’s helped both of my kids learn about more amazing women throughout history. The other day I overheard my son reading the book to my daughter and my heart just about burst.
My son is learning about amazing women right along side our rebel little girl and it’s shaping his view of the world as well.
But at the end of the day, this book is all hers, and she loves it! It’s the perfect after school storybook, and yep, she sneaks it into bed with her too.
