Books to Inspire Your Daughters

Our Librarian, Miss Laura Cambridge, is regularly updating our school Library to ensure we have an engaging and stimulating range of books for our students T-12.

We have recently purchased an exciting range of books called “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” by Favilli and Cavallo.

“Recently, I realised that not a single story I read growing up featured a girl who took her destiny in her hands and made something on her own without the help of a prince, a brother, or a mouse,” said Favilli . “By the time girls reach elementary school, they already have less confidence than boys. Why is that? They say that ‘If you can see it, you can be it’ — but what happens when you never see someone like you making the headlines?”

“Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” tells the stories of 100 powerful, real-life women and girls such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Frida Kahlo, Helen Keller, and Amelia Earhart.
