Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls
I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter after seeing an article about it on Facebook. This is the BEST book you could ever buy your daughter or yourself. It is all about women and their amazing personal and career achievements. It is so empowering and I strongly recommend you buy it for all the women, both young and old in your life. It is written for an 8 to 100+ age, under 8 is best for an adult to read to a child and it is full of lovely pictures. Also, you don't have to read it from front to back, you can just look in the index and read about who interests you most first.
Incredibly inspirational for girls of all ages. Stories about 100 influential women, from past to present. Girls can do anything the put their mind to! - Erin (QBD)
