Summary

Björk, Dr Seuss, Whoopi Goldberg, Andy Warhol, Ellen MacArthur, Greta Gerwig, Andrea Bocelli, Hua Mulaa...these are men and women who all dared to be different. 

Boys will be boys and girls will be girls - or so the meaningless saying goes. Because what if you're a girl and you like cage fighting? Or you're a boy and you love ballet? And what if you've always dreamed of being a scientist but you can't see anyone who looks or sounds like you, and who has left a legacy - in the form of microscopes and Bunsen burners - for you to follow?    

This is the audiobook for children who want to know about the lives of those heroes who have led the way, changing the world for the better as they go.     

Following the runaway success of Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different, parents asked for a celebration of role models of both genders for boys and girls within the same audiobook. Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different is the answer. These are the extraordinary stories of 100 famous and not-so-famous men and women, every single one of them an inspiring pioneer and creative genius in their own way, who broke the mould and made their dreams come true.    

Like Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different, this is an evocative and inspirational audiobook of amazing stories of amazing people that will delight sons and daughters, nephews and nieces, and give them the courage to be themselves.

inspirational but with insidious flaw

This is generally awesome and inspirational but contains one totally flawed story, all the other stories are about children who overcome extraordinary difficulties or do wonderful and beneficial human deeds. Then there is this highly detailed PROPAGANDA praising the Syrian white helmets and condemnation of the Syrian government and propagating the lie that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own people. The fact that the rest of the book is so inspiring makes this even more disgusting.
