Reviews and Recommendations

We've comprehensively compiled reviews of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls from the world's leading experts.

Zoe Greaves Rosa Parks, Maria Callas, Amelia Earhart. The range is amazing. It’s spectacular. I wish I had had this book when I was a child. In terms of female role models, it’s wonderful. I took this on holiday over the summer and my 14-year old niece was reading it to my 8-year old daughter and they just couldn’t stop. They were sharing the stories, they’d read one to each other and we’d be regaled with facts. ‘Did you know?’ Or ‘This chemist did this and this astrophysicist did that.’ They’re beautifully potted mini biographies, perfectly phrased.
