Girls Are Not Chicks: A Cool Coloring Book for Girls

Girls Are Not Chicks coloring book

Girls Are Not Chicks coloring book, $10 at Reach & Teach

Love this quirky coloring book with a ‘tude — it’s a fun (and welcome) departure from the pervasiveness of princess- and Barbie-world. Some sample text that accompanies the illustrations in Girls Are Not Chicks?

Schoolchildren with hands on hearts — “We pledge allegiance to… all-girl bands, pro-choice rallies, witchcraft, and female MCs.”

As the spider descends on Little Miss Muffet — “I ain’t moving from this tuffet.”

Rapunzel in her tower — “This time, she had some power tools, a pair of scissors, a roll of duct tape, a Tina Turner album, and a bus pass.”

But the message isn’t lost even if the artist is too young to read. When Magnolia opened it up, she said “Hey, it’s a ballerina! With a tool!” (“Plie, releve, tour jete… Graciela recited these names so studiously, practicing her new dance steps all the way to auto mechanics class.”)

Girl power!

Buy it at online at Reach & Teach.
