Golden stars

The Representation in the UK is pleased to offer copies of the story book "The Mystery of the Golden Stars" to UK schools and similar organisations free of charge (incl. delivery). The primary aim of this resource is to introduce some aspects of the European Union in a child-friendly way to upper junior school-aged children in the UK. It allows children to discover what the EU is; how it works and how it may be relevant to them, in a fun and stimulating way.

The activity guide for teachers is also available, including suggestions on how to use the resource plus the hand-outs to be copied for the pupils. The activities take a cross-curricular approach, including six different links to the curriculum (geography, maths, history, English, science and design & technology).

Both resources were produced in cooperation with a UK teacher. The concepts are mainly, but not exclusively, suited to upper junior school-aged children in the UK (ages 9 to 11).

Orders can be placed using the form below.

The PDF and the e-book of the "The Mystery of the Golden Stars" can be also downloaded.

Other EU publications are also available for order at the publications website.

This Representation is unable to send publications outside the UK. If you want publications sent to another country, please contact:

  • For EU countries, your national European Commission Representation
  • For non-EU countries, your European Union Delegation
