Rebel Girls Lead celebrates the leadership of women from Michelle Obama to Malala Yousafzai. It is illustrated by female artists from around the world. Available via Rebel Girls / Read reviews: Goodreads


This is no different from the other Rebel Girl books in the way it is colorful, inspiring, and empowering, and even though I’m not exactly its target reader, I felt the message of the stories in this book deep in my heart and I wouldn’t hesitate to gift a copy of this to my young nieces. I liked that it tried its best to showcase women of different ages, ethnicities, nationalities, industries, and advocacy, and that the stories were written in simple language yet with great effect. All the accompanying art is gorgeous, and I thought each one represented the featured individuals well.

But my favorite above all would be the activity pages at the end of the book, especially the one wherein the reader can write their own story and draw themselves. Encouraging little girls to believe they can do good things as well as help others is important.


Colorful, inspiring, and empowering, Rebel Girls Lead: 25 Tales of Powerful Women reminds readers, especially girls, to believe in their strengths and their power to achieve. ☁️
