About the Book

We are the World (classes 1–10) is a series on value education and life skills. It was first published in 1989 and revised in 2005; this is the third edition. The books help children to look at themselves and their personal growth; see beyond themselves in the context of society; explore their inner spirituality; and contribute their share to society. Each book is centred on a theme, from ‘Getting to know our world’ in class 1 to ‘Happy and free’ in class 10. The lessons work in seven stages: Key-in (individual work); Share-it-around (group work); Pass-it-on (group presentation); Talk-it-over (class discussion); Think-it-through (reflection); Take-it-in (spiritual experience); and Carry-it-through (action).

Sister Cyril, former principal of Loreto Day School, Sealdah, Kolkata, is a widely respected educationist and social worker. She has lived and worked in India since 1956, actively involved in the education and social uplift of deprived children. At Loreto, she set up the Rainbow Program to house, feed and educate former street children. She also started the Barefoot Teachers Training Program to educate young men and women from slum/rural backgrounds, who then go on to become primary educators in villages. Sister Cyril is involved in combating domestic child labour as well. In recognition of her social work, the Government of India awarded her the Padma Shri in 2007.
