Elena Favilli

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Immigrant Women Who Changed the World is the third book in the New York Times bestselling series for children.

Packed with 100 bedtime stories about the lives of 100 extraordinary immigrant women from the past and the present, this volume recognizes women who leave their homeland to seek refuge, to realize their dreams, and to share their invaluable contributions with the world.

Readers will fight climate change with Xiye Bastida-Patrick, captain a cricket team with Lisa Sthalekar, strategize global affairs alongside Madeleine Albright, and much more.

All of the stories are accompanied by gorgeous, full-page, full-color portraits, illustrated by female artists from all over the globe.

Review

The first two Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls books of biographical stories of extraordinary women, past and present, have been beloved bestsellers around the world. Now, we have a collection of stories about women who have immigrated from one country to another, often through necessity.

It’s a diverse collection, including athletes, scientists, activists, journalists and more. Primarily featuring contemporary women, many have had to overcome hardship and all have displayed incredible determination to excel at their chosen career. There are stories of well-known immigrants such as Anna Wintour, Rihanna and Elizabeth Kübler-Ross, as well as lesser-known women including Xiye Bastida Patrick, an Indigenous Mexican–Chilean who moved to New York and became a leader of the youth climate movement. There are even two remarkable Australian women – Turia Pitt and Geraldine Cox.

These well-written, pint-sized biographies are perfect bedtime reading. This book can be read to a child as young as 3 or enjoyed by ages 7+. Informative and inspirational, it deserves a place on the shelf of every book-loving home!
