What an inspiring book! Rebel Girls Champions tells the stories of 25 unstoppable athletes. The sports range from everything from dressage to skateboarding and each page features a story and accompanying illustration. I appreciated how all of the illustrations were done by women and the artistic styles were varied. There is a great mix of younger athletes as well as the trailblazers who came before them. The women in this book all deserve to be celebrated. I love the representation present here and how even though this book is meant for young girls they don’t shy away from heavy topics such as racial injustice, gender equality, LGTBQ+ rights and refugee crises. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this advanced copy. I will be recommending this to all of my friends who are raising strong rebel girls of their own.
I love this book! It is so great to encourage women and girls in sports! The artistry in this book was well beyond my expectations. As a Canadian I particularly loved Brigette Lacquette's story! These are the kind of heroes I want my niece to know because unlike the Avengers, these women run the world and are real life Wonder Women! The story of Hidilyn Diaz had me nearly getting misty. She is such a hero to myself and I am glad that she is getting the recognition that she deserves. As women in sports are so underrated, undervalued and underappreciated, this book encourages girls to look at how magnanimous these beautiful souls are and to give girls hope and to aspire to achieve goals in sports. The concept that if you believe you can achieve anything is absolutely beautiful! I will be purchasing this one for all my friends who have children!
Another incredible book from Rebel Girls. This is perfect for any child who has got curious about the postponed Olympics and Para-Olympics that have taken place this year. Filled with information about some of the greatest female Champions of various sports you learn about their successes and their background, what got them into the sport etcetera. I strongly believe that there will be a child out there who will read Rebel Girl Champions and want to be in the X-Games or Olympics one day thanks to this book. Rebel Girls have found their niche in the world of nonfiction for children with their wonderfully illustrated books that as I've said before belong on every bookshelf out there to help educate and influence children of any gender into finding their true self. With Champions, I liked that it was right up to date as of August 2021 with winners at the Tokyo Olympics, as well as those who won medals in their sports in thr last few decades. Congratulations on another guaranteed success Rebel Girls.
