Imagine


Imagine 
by Liuna Virardi

I wonder what the boy with the freckles wants to be when he grows up. Or what the bearded man’s house looks like. Lift the flaps to find out. There might be more than what meets the eye!
Do you ever wonder about the lives of the people sitting in front of you on the subway? In this colorful and boldly graphic book, the narrator wonders who the “strangers” travelling alongside him are. A celebration of diversity, this book invites readers to imagine what lies behind an appearance and to reflect on their own judgements and prejudices.

“Et c’est génial, parce que l’on se prend à imaginer, avant de soulever la page : pourquoi a-t-il un chapeau, de quoi rêve-t-elle, etc. Et alors, c’est parfait pour développer le langage de l’enfant, pour solliciter son imagination : on peut alors demander à celui-ci de nous expliquer ce qu’il imagine avant de soulever le flap et de rigoler ensemble à propos de ce que l’on voit. C’est le livre parfait, en somme !”
