A couple of weeks ago I got an email asking me to take a look at the press release for a new Kickstarter project about a book featuring stories for girls or something. I have to be honest, I get several of these kinds of requests and I was a bit busy at the moment planning for a family trip, and so I put it on the back burner for a couple of days. But then I had a quiet moment to go through my to-read messages, and OMG y'all! Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - 100 tales to dream BIG by Timbuktu Labs is the book we have been craving!
Can I just take a minute to fangirl a little about this book?! I love love love this project! I love the idea of the project. I love the way it's been put together. And I love the artwork and the video and the coloring book. I love everything about it.
I love it for all the little girls who go to sleep with dreams of space ships and microscopes and tennis rackets floating in their heads. And I love it for all the kids who desperately need to see women doing amazing things so they can create a future where everyone is welcome to follow their dreams.
More importantly though, I want a copy for myself. And the coloring book. And the stickers! I want them all. In the time since this project has gone live, I've raved about it to no fewer than a dozen people.
Co-creator Elena Favilli was kind enough to answer a few questions I had about this fantastic project and her work with Timbuktu Labs designing creative and fun play spaces for kids. Clearly she's no stranger to creating amazing things to inspire young minds.
