All in step with wing in wing . . . Chicks can conquer anything! Nerdy Chick has been waiting all day for the Rocket Club meeting. But when she gets there, she finds a disturbing sign tacked to the door: “NO CHICKS ALLOWED!!!” Puzzled, then baffled, then just plain mad, Nerdy Chick sets out to change the rules. Along the way, she meets other chicks who are just like her: passionate and determined. From Soccer Chick to Science Chick and Wordy Chick to Yoga Chick, these chicks aren’t willing to take “NO” for an answer. They rally together, march to the barn at the center of town, and—when they hear “NO” once again—chart their own path forward (or, rather, up, up, and away!). A celebration of girl power and community action, Chicks Rule! is the playful, diverse, victorious anthem chicks everywhere will love.

Praise

"True to its musical core, Bardhan-Quallen’s text has a lively spring, which is snappy to read aloud."
Kirkus Reviews
"This title brings a message of courage and growing self-esteem through the support of friends." 
School Library Journal
"The theme of working together and empowering one another is sweetly (and comically) portrayed here along with an important early lesson about relying on others when facing a personal struggle." 
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Panel art moves this story of friendship and teamwork along quickly for a lighthearted yet relatable read."
Booklist
