Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls
Publisher: Particular Books
If you're worried that your children experience a lack of female role models in the worlds of science, politics, the arts, history, sport and technology, worry no more! Featuring a brief summary of the work and lives of 100 historical and contemporary great women, as well as many unknowns, the breadth and diversity - not to mention stunning and varied illustration - of this hefty hardback is admirable.
The "once upon a time" bedtime story style text is very much aimed at a younger primary audience, and provides a really good start for young minds who will want more details when they get a bit older. Because the text is written as a story, parents and carers will have to remind children that these are in fact real accounts of real women, and be all the more inspired for it.
