Editorial Reviews

Review

"What Can a Citizen Do? by Dave Eggers raises the urgent question of how to be engaged, compassionate, and empowered, and the cut-paper illustrations by Shawn Harris are so fun and so richly detailed that kids will make new discoveries on every read. It's an absolute delight." -Maile Meloy, New York Times bestselling author of Do Not Become Alarmed and The Apothecary

Publishers Weeky's Most Anticipated Children's Books of Fall 2018

"This must-have book distills the fundamentals of citizenship into easy-to-digest concepts and emphasizes the importance of caring for others, accepting differences, and taking action to initiate positive change." -School Library Journal, starred review

"This book is about more than being a good citizen; it's about being a good person. And that's why Eggers and Harris have created the exact book we all need on our kids' shelves right now." —Cool Mom Picks

"Teaches young readers that being engaged and informed can turn anyone into an activist, no matter their age." —Time Magazine

"Spark a mind with Dave Eggers's heartening and galvanizing storybook. (The answer to the title? A whole lot, in fact.)" —Martha Stewart Living

"Obligatory reading for future informed citizens." —The New York Times

"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

"In an era of burgeoning student activism, Dave Eggers' new picture book What Can a Citizen Do? is arriving at the perfect time." —Entertainment Weekly

"Examines what it means to be a citizen, that is, a responsible and caring resident of whatever place in which one happens to live, and how we can all work to transform our world from what it is to what it could be." —The Buffalo News --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
