Book Review: Rebel Girls Animal Allies: 25 Tales of Women Working with Wildlife

Meet 25 brave, compassionate scientists, veterinarians, activists, and others who fight for animal rights and conservation. Animal Alliestakes readers all around the world—to the tops of trees and the bottom of oceans, deep into the jungle and high into the mountains.

Swim with the sharks alongside Eugenie Clark, build bat houses with Amanda Lear, nurse a baby hippo to health with Christina Gorsuch, and protect endangered seahorses with Amanda Vincent and Heather Koldewey.

With a foreword by zoologist Lucy King and activities curated by conservationist Bindi Irwin, this book is sure to inspire animal lovers everywhere.


I mean, what else can I say about this book other than it is another excellent addition to the Rebel Girls series. This is the first one I’ve read that has been more focused. To be honest, the majority of the girls in this book were new to me, which made it a much more interesting read and meant that I learned a lot too!

The book is targeted at ages 8-11 but really they are for everyone. I’d certainly recommend reading Animal Allies to much younger children to get them excited about animals and open their eyes to the many careers out there that involve working work animal. They stories also provide great talking points and the illustrations are beautiful.
