Bravo!!!

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 is an awesome addition to our herculean effort of not only empowering girls and women, but to also inspire the boys & men who love and respect us. The language is suitable for children 4 YO+.

This magnificent work by entrepreneurs Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo simplifies the achievements of 110 women across time & the globe who persevered. This progressive pair of women have not only redefined the indie publishing world with their company, Timbuktu, but they are also committed to global change. Bravo!

But what makes this Audiobook truly special is that the featured women’s stories (Sonia Sotomayor, Beatrix Potter, Celia Cruz, Dorothy Vaughan, etc) are narrated by yet another group of fabulous women (Alicia Keys, Ashley Judd, Esperanza Spalding...). Truly a remarkable project - the publisher’s words say it all!

TO THE REBEL GIRLS
OF THW WORLD:

YOU ARE THE PROMISE.
YOU ARE THE FORCE.

DON’T STEP BACK,
AND EVERYONE
WILL MOVE FORWARD.

I too believe stories can change the world!

Eh

These stories read more like paragraphs. Nothing really interesting about them. I guess it puts you to sleep all right.

A great read for any child!

As a mother of two girls and a librarian for fifth and sixth grade students, I was ecstatic to discover Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls. The mini biographies of 100 women from around the world and throughout history are written in such a way that anyone can enjoy and understand them. The stories of these women and the lessons they learned teach boys and girls alike the power of determination and strength in the face of adversity. I strongly recommend!

My daughter did not enjoy this book in the digital form at the age of seven. It was honestly boring to her for listening. She would probably enjoy reading the book much more. I would not recommend this book in the audio form, it bored me as well.

Strong women around the world need to be acknowledged more! They are brave and mostly unacknowledged.

Grateful

I love and have enjoyed your book and I’ll recommend it to anyone because we all deserve to know these heroic and true women stories. I also think you don’t need to be heroic in order to feel inspired by women like those to do your best to feel free and deserving of respect, dignity and love. Forever grateful!!!
