Little Feminist Book Club: Chicks Rule

Saturday, February 23, 2019 BookBairn 1 Comments

You know that we love a book with a mighty girl at the centre and share lots of them as part of our Little Feminist Book Club posts so I was really excited to see a book starring lots and lots of mighty chicks and wanted to share it for our 'book of the week' feature on our social media. But I also wanted to share it here!

Chicks Rule by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen & Rene Kurilla is one of our favourite books at the moment! From Maker Chick to Baker Chick to Soccer Chick and Rocker Chick all the chicks in town are horrified by and standing up to the “No Chicks Allowed” rule! Nerdy Chick isn’t standing for this senseless rule and won’t let it stand in their way to achieving her dreams of launching a rocket into space! She turns to her fellow chicks for help. And together they lift each other and prove once and for all that chicks are truly out of this world!

I love that this is a book about a group of chicks working together to achieve their goal. There are lots of great books about mighty girls but those girls are often flying solo against the system and I think it's important to share a message that whilst we are mighty on our own in our own right, we are more powerful when we work together.

Written in the most wonderful rhyme and packed full of humour and fun, l love reading this one aloud! I love that this book has a huge cast of characters with all different passions and with all different interests as well as all different colours of feathers. The illustrator has very cleverly created a diverse coop of chickens!

The illustrations aren’t the kind that I’m usually drawn to but we love the bright colours and cartoon/comic style. I am totally won over by them! Showing you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. And you shouldn’t judge a Chick by her feathers! I cannot say how much love I have for this book! And BookBairn wants it read over and over again so I will happily oblige!

If you love a book about a mighty chick, or even better a team of mighty chicks that work together to achieve their goal then this is a must-have for you bookshelf!

Chicks Rule!
Happy Reading,
Kim and the bairns x

  1. This looks a great book with a great set of characters. Look forward to reading it with BookChick. PS - what’s the chick with the skull and crossbones called?
