Children’s reading nook: Patricia Forde reads Imagine, illustrated by Elina Braslina

Curl up on your favourite cushion or chair, and listen to Patricia Forde read you a story.

In Imagine by Patricia Forde, illustrated by Elina Braslin (Little Island), a little girl confides in her grandmother about her fears: pirates, monsters, the big dog down the lane…

Each time, the girl’s grandmother suggests a funny situation to imagine, to help her overcome her fears and anxieties. The big dog isn’t so scary anymore when you imagine him on rollerskates! And pirates aren’t so frightening once they put away their swords and start playing with their dolls!

This is a light-hearted text by multi-award-winning Irish author Patricia Forde, with quirky illustrations by Elina Braslin—a heart-warming story about a child and her grandmother, and the power of imagination and humour to conquer fear.
