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. A celebration of girl power and community action, Chicks Rule! is the playful, diverse, victorious anthem chicks everywhere will love.
"Appropriately for her theme, Bardhan-Quallen's rhyming text has the rhythmic quality of a chant. Kurilla supplies paneled pictures of stubby little chicks of many colors, all frowning adorably with determination . . . there's no questioning its energy. I am woman, hear me peep."
— Kirkus Reviews
"A fun and lively read-aloud about empowering girls, and a splendid example of what a community can accomplish when everyone is included."
— School Library Journal
"The upbeat tone will speak to all, as will the inclusive message that the chicks tape to the control panel of their rocket ship: 'Everyone allowed!'"
