it is not often that one book or a series becomes the central topic of discussion not just among a select group but among parenting groups across the world. The Rebel Girls series took the world by a storm and the impact it had on our kids- daughters especially was so paramount that it led to all of us parents- gifting our kids more books with women as central characters or more women inspiring books. Read KSP's review of the Rebel Girls book series on KSP Book Club here.
It was a memorable opportunity when Mansi Zaveri, Founder, Kidsstoppress got to talk to Sarah Parvis, Senior Editor at Rebel Girls and a famous children's book author. With over 2 decades of experience in ideating and executing engaging and richly designed children’s books, and more than 40 titles to her name, Sarah writes on science, nature, puzzle, activity, and girl empowerment titles.
I still remember when I grabbed my copy of Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls, I was more excited than my daughters to read it! The following nights were enjoyable as we scoured through the pages, starry-eyed at the stories of each of the achievers and I have frankly lost count of the number of times we have revisited the books in this series!
In this exclusive video for Kidsstoppress we speak to Sarah on how the idea for Rebel Girls came about, why children's books should focus more on strong girls instead of damsels in distress, and what we can do to raise young and ardent readers. Given Sarah's experience in penning for kids, we also ask her how to win kids and convert them into book-loving kids in a world that is filled with distractions. You will love what she has to say about this.
