“Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls” by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo

This was recommended by a client with two young girls, who is raising them to be strong and confident in a society that too often lacks healthy female role models – or that simply doesn’t pay enough attention to them. “Goodnight Stories” reinvents fairy tales, based upon the real life stories of queens, scientists, writers, dancers, boxers and more. The dynamic illustrations help bring these stories to life. In the words of one reviewer, “swap out Cinderella for Cleopatra tonight.”
