Survey the soaring hills of Scotland in this sparkling issue of FACES magazine! Hogmanay, Harry Potter, kilts, Kelpies, Caledonians, and caber-tossing -- kids can get to know Scotland like never before.
From the Loch Ness to the Lowlands, find folklore, food, facts, and fiction that will provide insights about the culture, people, and history of a fascinating place: Scotland. Learn why it’s a kilt, not a skirt; tarten, not plaid; and that haggis may not deserve its bad reputation. While separating fact from fiction, kids can act out a famous folktale, peruse the diary of a puffin that spans five years, craft a castle, and create cookies.
