Bought this for grandaughter (10) and she read it in a week. Now reading selected stories to grandson (5) and second grandaughter (3) as bedtime stories. I'm enjoying them too and looking forward to volume 2.
Well worth buying!! -
Fabulous book. Informative, full of women/girls who children may not have heard about. Very interesting. My 8-year-old could not stop randomly opening the pages to read the short descriptions. I really recommend this book.
Inspirational for all! -
Fantastic book full of short, simple but inspirational stories about strong women from the past as well as the present! It's not just for rebel girls though, all our rebel boys should get clued up on the strong women who have shaped the world too. A must-have for all children's bookshelves.
