The Lost Girl King Resources

To celebrate the publication of The Lost Girl King by Catherine Doyle, Bloomsbury Children’s Books are offering an incredible digital pack filled with engaging and inspiring resources.

The pack includes:

– A sneak peek extract
– Discussion notes and teaching resources
– An A3 Praise poster
– A selection of social media assets

Join in the fun and share photos on social media using #TheLostGirlKing and tagging KidsBloomsbury, doyle_cat and @readingagency. It is from your feedback and online activity that the publishers see how their resources are being used and the value it brings to your libraries which will encourage them to provide more resources.

Many thanks to Catherine Doyle, The Reading Agency and Bloomsbury for kindly supplying us with the educational resource pack.

Of course, we always encourage schools to generate their own ideas: if you want to write poetry, sketch a drawing, or devise your own theatrical performance based on the book… go for it and have THE BEST fun!

Just make sure to let us know: tag us on Twitter or Instagram (@readdonegal), or email us directly at readdlsocial[at]
