Rebel Girls Awesome Entrepreneurs by Jocelyn Mangan

This product was recommended by Vivian Green from Sexsi Toys

This is the kind of thing that I absolutely wish I had as a kid. I first came across this at my sisters house. Her daughter got it as a birthday gift. What first struck me was the visuals. For a young child, you want it to be something that is aesthetically pleasing. I adore the artwork and design of the book. Designed by females and other non-binaries adds that extra touch of authenticity. Once I picked it up, I actually couldn’t put it down. A lot of these books are quite ‘gimmicky’, but each of the stories I read were very relatable and exciting. As I was going through the book I decided to quiz my niece to see what information she had absorbed. Not only could she point out all the names of the women mentioned in the book, but she could also tell me what they do and why they are included. The book covers a diverse range of people, and if you’re worried about it being technical, including words like entrepreneurship, profit, shares etc, they have brief explanations of the common business terms near the end. Preventing any of the vocabulary from getting in the way of the messaging and inspiration that is offered. Rebel Girls also have an amazing app that pairs nicely with the book, providing ‘Rebel Stories’ and engaging bonus sections throughout the book. Once they are done with this book, there is also a range of other educational and inspirational books from Rebel Girls. This is the first time I’ve been really excited about a book in quite some time. Absolutely perfect for the young female go-getters in your life!
