Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a children’s book packed with 100 bedtime stories about the life of 100 extraordinary women from the past and the present, illustrated by 60 female artists from all over the world.

I first heard about it a few years ago – I saw a video on Facebook showing the story of Cinderella, just that in that story Cinderella was… male! And you know what? This story had absolutely no sense at all!

The authors of this book Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo noticed that in the traditional bed stories there are always helpless girls who need a prince to save them. They asked a question: is it really what we want to teach our daughters?

I was WOWED! I decided that if I ever have a daughter, I will immediately buy this book – and that’s exactly what I did after my daughter was born.

Now we read every day a story of one extraordinary woman. And you know what? It’s super interesting also to me! I’m realizing how many of these amazing women I knew nothing about! And I’m glad I’m learning together with my daughter. It’s a great book both for kids and adults. Truly inspiring!
