A citizen can pick up litter
A citizen can pull a weed
A citizen can help that critter
A citizen can plant a seed
A citizen can aid a neighbor
A citizen can join a cause
A citizen can write a letter
A citizen can help change laws . . .
Empowering and timeless, What Can a Citizen Do? is a book for today’s youth about what it means to be a citizen.
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.
This is a book about what citizenship—good citizenship—means to you, and to us all.
