This book arrived just as I had completed reading the previous collection with my little sister during the weekend; Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls did just what it promised... meaning that she was put to sleep right away. I think the historical aspect wasn't quite there yet for my nine-year-old sister.

Still, I was ecstatic to hear the news of this follow-up book to come out. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 boasts a brand new graphic design, a glossary and 100 incredible new

This is a great book that has many stories! I learned a ton and hope to buy this book someday for my daughter.

"Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 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. This book inspires girls with the stories of great women."
This is a terrific two-book series. I am even more impressed with the second book than I was with the first. This so completely encompasses the non-white majority in the world, I started to wonder if the first one was mostly white Europeans and Americans. But it wasn't.

The books are composed of completely engrossing personal profiles of interesting women who managed, despite dysfunction in their society or families, managed to make something of their dreams. It is written as though for girls,

I purchased this book for my 7-year-old granddaughter. Her favorite book is Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls as well as the "I Am" series by Brad Meltzer with her all-time favorite being Rosa Parks.
We couldn't wait for volume 2 to be published. I backed both these volumes on Kickstarted and I am so happy I did. The one-page stories are just right for maintaining interest and the 100 extraordinary and diverse women highlighted range from present day heroes -to long ago inspiring women. I love

Incredible read. I enjoyed reading about these courageous and strong women who didn't back down to do right. Their dauntless attitude impacted many more lives. They found that the raising their voices against various injustices will help others to overcome their own fear of keeping quiet. Fight for what's right, for your freedom and for your life. Be Rebellious. Truly an amazing book.

The concept is the same one of the first volume and I just love them both. The authors really did an amazing job and every illustration is truly breathtaking. It's a really nice book to read even if you aren't a child anymore or don't have children yourself. I find this kind of books really interesting to read because they're able to give you a glimpse of someone else's life in just one or two pages.
And of course the aim of the book is a very important one: telling girls (and boys) awe-inspiring

I'm ashamed that I've never heard of most of the women highlighted in this book. I'm glad to see this in print.

Wow! What a great book. Five huge stars, would give more if I could.
I loved it even more than the first one. So many interesting women, extraordinary, very special and unique in their own way. Started with Agatha Christie, Angela Merker, Beatrice Vio, Sonia Sotomeyer, Steffi Graff, Sophia Loren, Rosalind Franklin, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and many more, 100 all together. Really very special. Of course as in the first book, there is a little story and an excellent portrait of each of the great

Gorgeous art and a fantastic collection of stories about women—I love that I’d never heard of about 3/4 of the women featured!

My favorite girl is Sara Seager, she's an Astrophysicist. She has a poster in the front of her office it looks like Luke Skywalker's home planet Tatooine from Star Wars.
I am very proud to have been a Kickstarter campaign supporter for this second volume of the amazing Rebel Girls series. This volume is wonderful like the first, with great biographies of incredible women from around the world. I hope they continue to make many more volumes of this book. My daughter loves these bios.

Another brilliant collection of inspirational women across a range of disciplines. Along with the first book this should have a place in every home. My only criticism is that the book is somewhat USA heavy in it's choices which leaves the rest of the world somewhat under represented in my opinion, maybe this will be rectified in GNSFRG3? ;)

A beautiful and inspirational book ideal for children and adults alike. The short limited information on each of these amazing women mean that children wouldn't lose interest in long winded descriptions and the basic details are provided only. For an adult, if you feel you would like to learn more about certain of these incredible women then I am sure there are books about each one or places online to find extra information to feed your curiosity, that is certainly what I intend to do!

Women rock!

Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls is the second book of the Rebel Girls books. It shares profiles of badass women from all walks of life and jobs.

It's also full illustrations and beautiful pictures.

It's powerful, enabling, and inspirational! This was the perfect read for International Women's Day, but honestly I just wanted to savor it I think next time around reading this I will read one each night.

My one complaint might be that it doesn't give a lot of details. it's all right

I think this one is better than the first, and I'm looking forward to the time I will be able to pass it own to my nieces.

Wonderful and inspirational.

I still find the title problematic (if we want to normalize these successes for women, we can't call the daughters we want to emulate them 'rebels'). But there are so many amazing women in these pages, I hope they continue the series.

I am gutted at the fact that the first book was fabulous whereas this book only contained roughly two people we wanted to read about. There was just more variety in the first book containing many wonderful stories including Ada Lovelace and Michelle Obama. This second book just lacked a sense of joy/excitement as well as contrasting backgrounds.

Another fantastic book that inspires girls to be strong and to fight for their dreams, I love the selection of stories and their beautiful illustrations, it reads so fast and gives you so much strength, that I'm sure that if there are 10 more books, I'll buy them in the first place
I love them!
I wanted to love this one so much, especially since I loved the first, but there were a few differences that dropped this a star from me. The authors' note that many of these are stories collected from readers and it definitely feels that way. The problem is that some of these stories lacked purpose. For example, there was a story of a volcanologist who wanted to ride a boat down a lava flow and who put her team too close to an explosion and everyone day. I didn't find that inspiring at all and ...more

This continuation to Iltasatuja kapinallisille tytöille is as great as the former one, though I must say I kind of wished some kind of theme of sorts. Now the collection feels kind of sporadic and it worked with the first part, but not really anymore. Also, Favilli and the others gathered the girls for this via their fans and friends, which leaves out many potential heroines not to forget that the book ends up unbalanced like this. The art is magnificent once again, though there's not as much ...more

This book is vibrant, and sounded up my street, mix with stories of girls from different cultures, backgrounds, religions and countries, so we (me and my daughters) enjoy exploring it. Every story is one written page (I wished to be little longer), and one drawing which make it easily for little ones, however, they become nearly involved in the stories, that broadens my daughter's horizons.
I encourage this kind of stories to our youngsters, which enable them to cope with life, yet would love to

The concept continues to be great, and there are potentially endless installments of this book. Again, the focus is on the US and, to a lesser extent, Italy, but the stories are mostly fascinating and many genuinely inspiring. As a parent to a seven-year old, this is certainly good bed-time reading. Again, there are stories about women who have made a difference, and women who have made a lot of money. My sense was that this one had fewer of the latter than the first book, hence the four stars ...more
Just as good (if not better!) as the first one! Apart from the fact that again I learned the names and read about the achievements of lots of amazing women, I was also very happy to see the stories about A. Christie, B. Potter, C. N. Adichie, C. Schumann, G. O'Keeffe, I. Duncan, J.K. Rowling, M. Abramovic, N. Gordimer. R. Carson, S. Sholl, V. Tereshkova, V. Maier, W. Szymborska and many others.

I absolutely adored this collection! Just like the first volume, it's filled with lovely 1-page mini-bios of a huge range of women, from ancient history to modern day, from scientists to activists to athletes, from Americans to Mongolians to Italians. It is inspiring and touching, each story providing a glimpse into yet another way that women can be courageous and make a positive impact in the world. The illustrations are gorgeous as well!

This isn't a book just for rebel girls but for every person out there. Stories of women who dared to go against stereotypes, who made this world a better place, who weren't afraid to act when they wanted to. These stories should always be celebrated and passed on because they are meant to inspire.
