Lari Don learning resources

Lari Don is emerging as one of Scotland's most exciting writers for children, with fiction ranging from picture books to gritty YA sci-fi.

Below, you'll find an activity pack for her children's titles First Aid for Fairies and Other Fabled Beasts and The Beginner's Guide to Curses. These two books are both the beginning titles in two separate series, and draw on Scottish mythology to create worlds full of modern-day mystery and adventure!

You'll also find an activity pack for Lari's book Drawing a Veil, which explores how a friendship is tested when a teenage girl, Amina, decides to start wearing traditional religious clothing. The book is a quick but substantial read which can open up discussion, and many teens will recognise the pressures at work in this fictional world.
