"[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 Post This 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.

A civics lesson in the form of a great story. Demonstrates how cooperation and tolerance can create a thing of beauty for all to enjoy. Harris almost 3 dimensional images, cut from paper and interspersed on the background truly enhance Eggers message. ( )

This book goes into fairness, social justice, and getting involved in the community. I don't think there's such thing as too young when reading a book like this. A citizen is a regular person, just like you and me, and it's important be involved in certain things and events that need attention. Making a change for the better is something everyone should consider doing and that's what the book is saying. ( )

This book has an incredible message about how it is everyones job to educate and help their country no matter their age. This book illustrates one child growing a group of friends that help their community, learn, and make the world around the, right. This is an amazing book to show students no matter their age what it means to be a citizen, their responsibility, and how they can make a change. ( )

Author Dave Eggers and illustrator Shawn Harris, who collaborated previously on Her Right Foot, a picture-book devoted to the story of the Statue of Liberty, join forces again in this look at the role of the citizen. The sing-song narrative sets out the many ways a citizen can get involved, from writing letters to changing laws, while the collage-style artwork depicts a diverse range of children in action...

I found Eggers and Harris' Her Right Foot a surprisingly good book, when I read it some time ago. Although I often find that authors famous in fields other than children's literature - Eggers is a celebrated name in the world of adult American letters - erroneously assume that this means they will have the skill to write for children, in the case of that other book, I thought it was a well-told tale, one that would be engaging for young readers. Given that this was so, and that I also enjoyed Harris' artwork, I went into What Can a Citizen Do? with every expectation of enjoyment. Unfortunately, although I found the visuals here quite appealing, with collage artwork that is energetic and expressive, I found the text somewhat muddled. Its heart is in the right place, and the message I think that Eggers is trying to get across - that citizens need to be informed, engaged and active - is a good one. That said, there simply isn't enough here - no explanation of what a citizen is, for instance - to ground the sing-songy list of things a citizen can do. There isn't enough information to be educational, nor enough story to be emotionally resonant.

I wish this one had been stronger, and that I could recommend it as a book to introduce children to the idea of citizenship - what it means, and what it entails, in terms of responsibilities and rights - but it isn't, and I can't. This one is nice enough, as a kind of general "get involved" book, but that's about as far as it goes. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. This is a great book to justify to children what it means to be a citizen. As a member of society, a citizen is not what you are, it is what you do. This book can ensure children that it is important to take action in the world by making a change. No matter your size, shape, color, or form as a citizen you can make a change whether it's big or small. The illustration throughout this book also conveys the text. ( )
