Exploring Brilliant Star’s Themes

Brilliant Star addresses vital topics for empowering kids’ spiritual and moral development, such as race unity, protecting the environment, creativity and the arts, and more. The content of each issue revolves around one theme. Our crew develops the themes through consultation about current child development research, the Bahá’í writings, and feedback from our readers.

Some themes may be repeated periodically, to bolster learning in certain key areas. Parents and teachers can use these themes to find specific activities and stories to enhance lessons on particular subjects. These are some of our recent themes and the issues that explore them.
