Here’s a fun-filled, kid-friendly nonfiction guide to encourage young citizens to be engaged in the world. Lively, civic-minded dinosaurs explore how our democracy works and why it's important to participate! They also show how the things we do every single day – even as children – can be guided by principles we all share in a democratic society: freedom, fairness, the rule of law, equality, respect for free speech, and respect for the truth. Your young dinos will be both fascinated and inspired as they discover the core values of our society and how they can play a role each day in our democracy. Ages 4-8. 32pp
