Babayan and the Magic Star and the Guide for Teachers and Families are the basis of the Babayan Story Project, an international initiative by Kiku Adatto and Michael Sandel, which encourages children to use storytelling to discover and transform the world.
This project has five goals:
Connect oral storytelling, writing, and reading
Strengthen the bonds between home and school
Ignite children's artistic and moral imaginations
Engage children in ethical reasoning and civic discourse
Share art, ideas, and projects locally and globally
