Democracy for Dinosaurs

A Guide for Young Citizens

From the bestselling, trusted team behind the Dino Tales: Life Guides for Families series comes this introductory guide that encourages young readers to become engaged citizens of the world.

This essential, kid-friendly nonfiction guide isn’t just for families looking to share genuinely patriotic values during an election year — it’s for everyone. Using accessible dinosaur characters and clear language, Democracy for Dinosaurs explores key civic values on every adult’s mind and helps show young readers how the things they do every single day can be guided by principles we must share in a democratic society: freedom, fairness, the rule of law, equality, respect for free speech, and respect for the truth. By modeling accessible ways to practice being a good citizen, children will understand they are part of their country and that they have an important role to play.

"The approachable illustrations implement cheery comics panels featuring anthropomorphized dinosaurs in a variety of relatable scenarios to explain fairness and its relationships to rules and laws, voting as a means of choosing and expressing individual opinions, and the tricky differences between truth, opinion, and belief."—Booklist
"The inviting second-person text speaks directly to 'kid citizens', encouraging them to view themselves as participants in our government...This optimistic and accessible guide to civic responsibility concludes with the charge to 'Stand Up for Democracy' -- a message now more important than ever."—Horn Book
