Rebel Girls and First Book Team Up!
It’s Giving Tuesday! In this special episode, we’ve teamed up with First Book (www.firstbook.org), a great organization getting books and educational materials into the hands of kids in need. Hear four amazing educators from the First Book network read stories they chose straight from the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls books, and tell us why they connect with those women in particular. And now through the end of the month, for any book purchased at www.rebelgirls.com, we’ll donate another one to First Book!
