The Chicks are back and ready for the new school year! In addition to nice, shiny school supplies, our backpacks are loaded with fabulous new books and other silly stuff to share with you in the months ahead. And we're starting things off with a bang!
Need a new totebag to schlep around your favorite snacks? Need some new books to read while you munch on those snacks? We thought so! That's why we're giving away a fabulous Three Silly Chicks totebag filled with our latest books! All you have to do is become a Three Silly Chicks fan on Facebook and leave a comment by 9:00 am on Saturday, Sept. 19th. A random winner will be chosen from all comments. What could be easier?
But what's that we hear some of you muttering?
Dahlings, I absolutely loathe social networking; must I really join FaceBook to have some Three Silly Chicks fun?
Heck no! Just tune your radio dial to WGN this Sunday (9/13) at 7:30 am to hear our dulcet bockings as we visit with Chicago's finest, funniest journalist Rick Kogan.
But chicks, you insist, what if I want to bask in your feathered glory and join you for a round or two of the Chicken Dance?
No problemo, we've got you covered! Come join us at the 57th Street Book Fair in Chicago this Sunday afternoon (9/13). We'll be on stage at 1:30 and signing books at 2:00. Come cut a rug with us! Whisper the secret password* in our ear and we'll give you a silly treat!
Now that's more like it. But how shall I pass the long hours in the meantime?
Check out this new blog called Hit the Ground Running, a treasure trove of tips and inspiration for "new and high-spirited" educators written by Esmé Raji Codell, one of our favorite chicks on the planet!
Happy reading, friends! We're glad to be back!
* Eggs Benedict. Shhh, it's a secret!
