FACES November-December 2016

If you’ve ever seen The Sound of Music, the word ‘Austria’ might conjure up images of lederhosen, goats, and apple strudel, but there’s a lot more to it than that. Climb the Austrian Alps with FACES and learn why this beautiful country is the crossroads of Europe. Where else can you find castles, birthplaces of famous composers, and spooky chambers filled with painted skulls? Once you’ve worked up an appetite touring Vienna and shredding the ski slopes, read about mouthwatering local treats and even make your own Austrian pasta! Don’t forget to show off your best Austrian-style art in our new contest. Readers can put on a short play based on a folktale and learn a few words of German in wunderbar articles including:
