"I have always wanted my daughters to think outside the box. Reading Rebel Girls has taught them to do just that.” – Kristen Bell, actor and author

100 Inspiring Young Changemakers, the newest addition to the best-selling Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls collection, shines a spotlight on extraordinary young women making their mark on the world today.

Readers of all ages will be inspired by the fascinating stories of well-known women like Greta Thunberg, Bethany Hamilton, Bindi Irwin, Zendaya, and the Linda Lindas. They’ll also meet up-and-coming powerhouses like inventor Vinisha Umashankar, sustainable fashion designer Marine Serre, stuntwoman Sadiqua Bynum, filmmaker Taegen Yardley, poet Alexandra Huynh, and environmental activist Helena Gualinga.

The girls and women in the book come from different countries and backgrounds yet they all share a common goal: making the world a better place. Barrier-breaking performer Keke Palmer became the youngest talk show host in US history. Entrepreneur Mikaila Ulmer founded a lemonade company to help save honeybees. Brazilian skateboarder Rayssa Leal turned a hobby into an Olympic dream. And British body positivity advocate Megan Jayne Crabbe and Indigenous artist Te Manaia Jennings inspire kids to keep their minds healthy.

With a foreword by conservationist and TV personality Bindi Irwin, 100 Inspiring Young Changemakers features the work of authors, artists, and editors aged 30 and under. Each story is told in the whimsical fairy tale style that has made this series a success and is paired with a bold, full-page portrait created by young female and nonbinary artists from around the world. This enchanting collection encourages girls everywhere to dream big, starting small!

I love everything about these books. Everything from the title, to the cover, to the inspirational women inside.

The illustrations are on point and represent each woman amazingly. The story-like biographies of each woman are short, but pack a punch. The book includes a wide range of young women from a variety of fields such as STEM, fashion, food, music, etc. I was thrilled to see that this edition included other countries that haven't been featured in other Rebel Girls books. The inclusivity in this one is on point. Not only do we see representation for LGBTQ+, but also women with physical and developmental disabilities as well.

The foreword by Bindi Irwin sets the tone, encouraging all to be a changemaker.

I absolutely love reading these biographies with my young boys. Everyone should pick up a copy for their personal libraries. The associated app is a neat, modern addition to check out the "hidden" QR codes throughout - unfortunately it only works for iOS devices, however.
