Kids’ Club Review by Isla: Good night stories for rebel girls

Syndetics book coverGood night stories for rebel girls : 100 tales of extraordinary women by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.

The book is about great girls and women. My favourite story is called Coy Mathis, a transgender, It is about Coy likes girls stuff and turns into a girl. When school started the teacher said she could either use a boy’s bathroom or a disable bathroom. The parents asked the judge, and the judge said she could use whatever bathroom she wants. and they threw a big party.

Syndetics book coverHero of the sea : Sir Peter Blake’s mighty ocean quests by David Hill ; illustrated by Phoebe Morris.

Sir Peter Blake was a sailor on the sea, and he was a very good sailor. He always loved the sea. One day he met a woman that he liked and then they went sailing together. He helped protect the environment. He married the woman, and they had children who liked the sea too and supported their father. But sadly one day he got killed by pirates who came onto their ship.

The pictures were really amazing. I liked this book!

Kids’ Club Review by Lily: Good night stories for rebel girls

Good night stories for rebel girls, by Elena Favilli, Francesca Cavallo

Goodnight Stories for Rebele Girls is a really fantastic collection of stories about women who dared to stand up for what was right, be their own person and follow their dreams. It teaches us to stand up for ourselves and what we believe is right. It also teaches us to believe in ourselves and not to give up. So dare to be different like all of these women have and strive to make the world a better place.
