This book is a lovely addition to the series at large. The illustrations are beautiful and there's a wide display of different young people and how their actions shape the world. The biographies are short, but the perfect length to read with children.

This book was packed full of stories to end pure girls to be the very best that they can be. I’ve enjoyed a couple of books in this series now and I have to say that they are very inspirational and ones that will will be buying copies for for my daughter once she is older. It was written very well and I loved dipping in and out of this book.

These stories are perfect for bedtime or anytime you have a few minutes to read to/with your child. My five year old daughter loves hearing these inspiring stories, and my nine year old son enjoys them as well. These stories often serve as a way for the kids to ask questions or wonder aloud about something we read. I love this series!

This is an absolutely perfect book! It was so inspiring to learn the stories of all of these young change makers! I cannot stop smiling about how many young girls will read this book and be inspired by the stories of these girls! I loved that there were stories written about girls all around the world from different backgrounds making changes in different ways for their community and the world. Athletes who were told they couldn't and proved everyone wrong, creators that inspire others with their work, young girls that wanted to help others, girls who failed and got back up again and again until they succeeded, girls who fought for their rights, and just so many more inspiring stories. I already knew some of the stories of the girls in this book but there were a lot of stories of girls I never knew about until reading this book. Every story was so uplifting to read. The inclusion of artwork of every girl in this was truly breathtaking. These artists captured the girls and their stories so well and I cannot believe one of them was eleven years old!! This book is filled with so much love and hope and inspiring bedtime story magic and I recommend everyone give it a read and share it with a young change maker in their life so that they can be inspired by these stories and make change too!

This has short stories about young girls that didn't give up. If they saw a problem, they worked in fixing it. And they were successful!
Rebel girls let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published September 27th.

These are true stories and come from all over the world. I was amazed at how they excelled at their project. They are musicians, dancers, sports athletes and nurses and astronauts as well as very good at technical things.

I enjoyed reading this book. Nobody is a wimp here.

I love all the Rebel Girl books. I shared this with my 9 year old granddaughter. She was interested and I enjoyed shares the time and the inspiration with her!

I love stories of strong females, and so I was very excited to read this with my little girl. However, I think it was a bit much for her, at 5 years old, so I would recommend this one for ages 8 and up. I ended up reading most of it alone, although my little love enjoyed all the beautiful and diverse artwork inside. Would recommend adding to any shelf!

This is such an important book! Yes, just like the other Rebel ones, but we know how representation matters, so having kids see other kids and teens doing *important* things can be so helpful! It's not only adults who can change the world, but they matter as well!

We love strong female characters, and in Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, we meet girls who can and have changed the world with their inspiring words and actions. This book caters to all young girls to stand up, speak out, and live to be a changemaker - without fear!

Highly recommended for ages 8 and up. This title should be in school libraries for reference and fun.
5 Stars!
