Baha'i education of children is one of the most important lines of action for the consolidation of Baha'i communities. Through children's education, the whole community can gradually be transformed. Observing the great need for a systematic approach to this task, some 50 years ago Hand of the Cause of God Ali-Akbar Furutan developed a set of 13 books for the Baha'i education of children. The books were written in the Persian language for use in the Baha'i communities in Iran (Persia) and were known as the Kitab-i-Dars-i-Akhlagh (Books for Moral Education). The set included 12 books for children aged 5 to 16-18 and a Teacher's Manual on the principles of Baha'i education.
Inspired by the spirit of the Four Year Plan and need for systematization of human resource development a group of Baha'i friends in Zambia decided to translate these books into English. The books include information on the update of the progress of the Faith, modifications based on cultural considerations and addition of new topics.
