RAISING CHANGE-MAKERS WITH CYRIL

About the Book Series “Raising Change Makers with Cyril”

We all want to raise children who aspire to make a difference. But how do we begin the tough conversations about the state of our world?

Raising Change Makers with Cyril is a fun and engaging children’s book series that helps children ages 6-12 learn about sustainable development. The series not only inspires children to take action and make a difference in their communities and society, but it also empowers them to hold adults and their governments accountable for carrying out the same mission of positive change.

The goal of the book series is to:

  • Enable children to think in systems to understand sustainability.          

No, sustainability is not only about eco-warriors saving the planet, it is also about decent jobs, access to good education, health care. It is also about individual well-being. It’s about seeing the interconnectedness of all life on Earth.

  • Empowered and not frightened: it is about approaching these complex topics in a light, fun yet educational manner to inspire young learners to be advocates for change. 

Imagine if your child could understand the impact they can have through simple acts of kindness. By recognizing that fulfilling our own needs with kindness fills us with such abundance that we naturally extend kindness to others and our environment, children can be empowered to make a difference. This framework draws inspiration from the philosophy and teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori.

We all want to leave our kids a better world than the one we were born into.

But how do you go about making that happen?

Cyril's Kindness Crew: Ending Poverty, Feeding the World! is a fun and engaging children's book series that helps children ages 6-12 learn about sustainable development goals. The series also inspires them to make calls for action to contribute to their communities and society and to hold adults and their governments accountable to delivering on the same mission.

Cyril, a clever squirrel and professor, uses his books to introduce his students to two Sustainable Development Goals. The first book focuses on the concept of sustainable development and the first two goals:

End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Zero Hunger

with the help of his expert friends. Cyril then prompts both his students and readers to consider what actions they can take to contribute towards achieving these goals.

The books are suitable for reading at home or using in schools as part of lessons on sustainable development topics. They're easy enough for young children but engaging enough for older children and teenagers too!
