What Can a Citizen Do? Reviews

Author Dave Eggers's books are always welcome, but this one is particularly so at a time when there is a national debate about insufficient civics education and how to engage young people in the civic life of their neighborhoods and country. What Can a Citizen Do?, illustrated by Shawn Harris, explains to kids what being a citizen means and how they can be a good one. The 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 Post
It's never too early for children to learn how they can make a difference. In this island community, residents discover how they can shape laws and impact the lives of those around them. The best-selling author-illustrator team teaches young readers that being engaged and informed can turn anyone into an activist, no matter their age. -- Time Magazine Best YA and Children's Books of 2018
obligatory reading for future informed citizens -- The New York Times Book Review
This book's a rhythmic, rhyming call for kids to be good citizens -- Common Sense Media
I love in a picture book: a timely message delivered with respect for young readers' intelligence, wit, and capacity for understanding. Plus...rhymes! -- Cool Mom Picks
The visual story of children working together to turn a lonely island into a thriving community helps young readers see that they can make a difference in their world. -- Brit+Co
This book is the latest collaboration from the acclaimed duo Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris. This is a book for today's youth about what it means to be a citizen. -- Maria Shriver
Thanks to this simple-yet-sweet picture book, children no longer have to wait until taking high school civics to learn what citizenship is and what each of us can - and must - do to make the world a better place. -- Honolulu Star Advertiser
just as relevant for adults as it is for kids -- Adweek
I hope my children take instruction from Dave Eggers' What Can A Citizen Do? I hope they know they are part of a community, that they can make a difference by planting a tree and standing up for what's right. This book invites active participation in society and politics, but it is also just a beautifully illustrated book. Illustrator Shawn Harris brings so much life and emotion and diversity to Egger's message, which tells children to care and to not be silent. I think we could all use these reminders. -- Romper
Spark a mind with Dave Eggers's heartening and galvanizing storybook. (The answer to the title? A whole lot, in fact.) -- Martha Stewart Living
