Jane Goodall devoted her life to studying chimpanzees. If you dedicated your life to one type of animal, what would it be?
When cyclist Alfonsina Strada began racing, she was so unstoppable that newspapers nicknamed her “the devil in a dress.” What would your cycling nickname be?
Celia Cruz is the Queen of Salsa music. Beyoncé is a pop superstar. Roxanne Shante is an amazing rapper. And Joan Jett is all about rock and roll. If you could be a singing sensation, what type of music would you sing? If you could perform a duet with anyone in the world, who would you pick?
If you could meet any woman from any country and any time in history, who would it be? What would you ask her?
Would you rather ask questions or answer them? Luckily, with Questions for Rebel Girls, you can do both!
Girls love to explore their feelings, uncover their personality, and decode the world around them. One way to do that is to explore their answers to provocative questions about anything and everything. Questions for Rebel Girls introduces readers to extraordinary women throughout history and asks them to imagine themselves in similar scenarios. Designed to ignite exciting discussions between little rebels and their siblings, friends, and grown-ups, Questions for Rebel Girls is packed with more than 500 entertaining and thought-provoking questions—including some questions submitted by young fans of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls.

Questions for Rebel Girls features 300 questions, facts about rebel girls throughout history, and quotes from inspirational women. The format of this book is bright, colorful and overall just eye-catching. I love love loved this book! Thank you NetGalley and the publishers for this ARC.
As a high school teacher I found this book would be perfect for a number of classroom activities. I think the questions, quotes, and facts would work well as a warm-up activity, bell work writing, or even essays. I think that the questions presented are not gender specific and would work well for all students (not just girls). In addition, I think these questions would appeal to students of all ages, not just middle grade students. Even adults would likely have fun answering these questions. I am already thinking of creative ways I can use this book in my classroom. I highly recommend this book for all people who like to answer thought-provoking questions.
𝑄𝑢𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑠 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑅𝑒𝑏𝑒𝑙 𝐺𝑖𝑟𝑙𝑠 from the Rebel Girls series is very different from any other of the books I have been lucky to read but that is far from a criticism.
Unlike the others, 𝑄𝑢𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑠 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑅𝑒𝑏𝑒𝑙 𝐺𝑖𝑟𝑙𝑠 focuses more on getting the reader to think about what they would thanks to questions posed by the Rebel Girls team, and readers of the previous books. I love that it encourages the reader to imagine themselves in certain situations, given opportunities in life etcetera. I strongly believe that these books belong in every school and personal library (and not just for girls) but this particular book would be ideal for such things as 'Big Reads' that are done in schools etcetera.
If you want your child to learn about various famous women in history and there is a diversity in these books that I haven't seen anywhere else, then these are for you. 𝑄𝑢𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑠 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑅𝑒𝑏𝑒𝑙 𝐺𝑖𝑟𝑙𝑠 will encourage conversation between the readers and those around them and encourage as always, for the reader to be their true self and strive for the best against prejudice, disability, age, gender etcetera.
Thank you as always to Rebel Girls for the advanced copy - they have created a fantastic series that is needed for all children.
Questions are powerful because they are the catalyst for change. “Questions for Rebel Girls” (a new addition to the Rebel Girls series) taps on the potential of inquiry, leading the reader to toy with ideas and form their own convictions. These questions are sparked by real women from various walks of life who rebelled for a cause – from Jane Goodall to Jacinda Ardern – encouraging the reader to imagine themselves in certain situations. The thought-provoking questions are preceded by very short write-ups on the rebel idols, hooking the reader with the right balance of information and reflection. A must-read for boys and girls alike! Book releases on 19 October 2021.
PS. I was truly impressed with the diversity of real rebel women featured – it even includes Lakshmi Bai (or Laxmi Bai), the queen of Jhansi who fought against the British in India to oppose the ‘Doctrine of Lapse’.
I've always been a huge believer that one of the best things you can do for you children is to talk to them and to really listen to how they respond. Children need to feel heard.
Poppy and I have long been fans of the Rebel Girls books, so when I spotted the next in the installment available for review on netgalley, I pressed the request button instantly. Questions for Rebel Girls is a wonderful book full of questions that will put you directly in the shoes of some incredibly inspiring women.
While Pops and I loved reading it together and sharing out responses with each other, it is wonderfully accessible for children to read independently. We found a lot of the questions provocative, opening up dialogue that sent us on all sorts of crazy tangents. We talked, giggled, snuggled and once even cried while we learned snippets of information about amazing women from around the world, and lots about one and other too.
I don't think I can praise this book, along with the rest of the series, highly enough. Every young lady should have a Rebel Girls book in their lives.
What a superb book to help empower our young women! It is full of quotes from powerful female role models and jam-packed with questions to help kick start discussions with friends and families that will help reveal the strengths, skills and extraordinary talents of our young people. What better way to learn self reflection and teach our young people to aim for success. The illustrations are beyond beautiful. A perfect gift. I have been reading a few pages per night with my daughters, opening the doors to rich conversation. My son loves to join in too. This would make a fabulous gift. #questionsforrebelgirls #rebelgirls #netgalley
I would like to thank the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this eBook.
I really enjoyed Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls and when I saw this I had to request it. Questions for Rebel Girls is filled with questions that can be used in so many ways - self-reflection, initiating conversations with our daughters and other young readers and also boosting their empowerment. This will make a wonderful gift to kids and women alike.
From pop stars to athletes to ancient inventors, this book introduces girls to plenty of interesting women and then follows up with questions the reader can answer themselves. I liked that it also included plenty of questions from regular girls who had the opportunity to send in their own ideas and be a part of this book.
The book was bright, colourful, and positive. It was the kind of activity book where the reader can choose to read through the whole thing, or do a page or two a day, filling in their answers in a separate notebook. I would recommend this book to young readers who are interested in guided journaling, but loved that it was so much more than a guided journal because of all the interesting facts and quotes that were included.
I received a free copy from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
