Description

Rocker Chick overcomes stage fright to find her voice in this rockin’ companion to Chicks Rule!

Rocker Chick loves to jam out alone in her room. She strums her guitar and belts into her tailfeather brush. But she’s too chicken to perform for a crowd. When she’s invited to play a big show at the local barn, Rocker Chick isn’t sure she’s brave enough to take the stage. Thankfully, her peeps have her back.
Each bringing their own strengths and skills, Rocker Chick’s friends help her find her inner rock star and step into the spotlight. This celebration of courage and commitment shows just how much friendship rocks!
