During this divisive moment in our country, how do we model good citizenship for our kids? In Episode 140 of Edit Your Life, I interview Rana DiOrio, co-author of the forthcoming book What Does It Mean to Be American? Rana shares what inspired her to write the book, what she felt was missing in the children’s book publishing market, and how books can open the door to two foundational aspects of good citizenship: inclusivity and empathy.
