" This] charming book provides examples and sends the message that citizens aren't born but are made by actions taken to help others and the world they live in." --The Washington PostThis is a book about what citizenship--good citizenship--means to you, and to us all: Across the course of several seemingly unrelated but ultimately connected actions by different children, we watch how kids turn a lonely island into a community--and watch a journey from what the world should be to what the world could be.
What Can a Citizen Do? is the latest collaboration from the acclaimed behind the bestselling Her Right Foot Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris.
For today's youngest readers about what it means to be a citizen and the positive role they can play in society.
Includes beautiful illustrations and intriguing, rhyming text.
"Obligatory reading for future informed citizens." --The New York TimesWhat Can a Citizen Do is an empowering and timeless read with an important message for all ages.
