Good Citizen Jack gives the view of how a grade school boy adapts to his family's move to Hawai'i and how he learns about citizenship in the bargain. Some of Jack's experiences - snorkeling, viewing endangered monk seals, dodging a backyard mongoose, and helping to protect Hawai'ian nēnē geese - are unique to the islands that make up the 50th U.S. state. However, the principles of good citizenship which Jack learns are applicable in the lives of young people in all of the other 49 states as well. Raising children to become good citizens doesn't happen by chance. It happens because parents, schools, and communities develop good citizens. Young people can become committed to considering the impact of their conduct on others at school, within their community, and in the world. Then, not only do students who are good citizens help others, but they themselves become happier, more successful adults.
