Our Generation is unlike any that has come before. We’re helping our families learn to recycle, holding bake sales to support charities, and holding penny drives to build homes for orphaned children in Haiti. We’re helping our little sisters learn to read and even making sure the new kid at school has a place to sit in the cafeteria.

It’s impossible to separate Our Generation® characters from the generation of girls who read about and play with them, for they are one and the same. They’re changing the world by making their households greener. They’re baking cupcakes to help charities. They’re writing in their journals, practicing for recitals, doing cartwheels down the block and giggling with their friends until they can hardly breathe. Our Generation is about girls growing up together. “This is our story” reflects the community of these amazing girls as they laugh, learn and create the narrative of their own generation.
This story also came to life because of all the wonderful people who contributed their creativity and vision, including Joe Battat, Dany Battat, Loredana Ramacieri, Karen Erlichman, Sandy Jacinto, Véronique Casavant, Véronique Chartrand, Jenny Gambino, Natalie Cohen, Lisa Armstrong, Joanne Burke Casey and Pam Shrimpton.
