Publisher Description

“[This] charming book provides examples and sends the message that citizens aren’t born but are made.” The Washington Post
This is a book about what citizenship—good citizenship—means: 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 to what the world could be.
With beautiful illustrations and rhyming text, What Can a Citizen Do? is the latest collaboration from the team behind Her Right Foot: New York Times–bestselling author Dave Eggers and acclaimed artist Shawn Harris. It’s a delightfully engaging way for young readers to be inspired about the meaning of citizenship and the positive role they can play in our country and our world.
“Obligatory reading for future informed citizens.” —The New York Times
“An absolute delight.” —Maile Meloy, New York Times–bestselling author of Do Not Become Alarmed
“[A] must-have book.” —School Library Journal
