The Bahá'í Writings state that "the education and training of children is among the most meritorious acts of humankind."

Filled with fun, hands-on, kid-tested learning activities, this theme book is the first in a series of easy-to-use teacher's guides designed for Bahá'í children's classes.

Inside you will find a treasure trove of ideas for Bahá'í summer and winter schools, Holy Day programs, academic classrooms, home schoolers and weekend retreats.

The book has four sections:

* The Kingdoms of Creation
* God, the Creator
* Prayer, Our Connection with God
* What is a Human Being?

The index at the back of the book makes it easy to find exactly what you need. Choose from readings and stories, demonstrations, crafts, songs, games, felt lessons, discussion starters, memory quotes, word puzzles, outdoor and movement activities, thinking and meditation exercises, a quiz show and more.

Thank you for visiting the site and for your mutual interest in providing spiritual education for children. It is hoped that these resources will serve to familiarize children with the basic Bahá'í teachings, and increase their capacity to be of service to others, while at the same time making the teacher's job easier and more rewarding. I am profoundly grateful to my loving family without whose support this book would not have been possible.
