Le bateau magique

by Kit Pearson & Katherine Farris, illustrated by Gabrielle Grimard, translated by Rachel Martinez

tagged: imagination & play, friendship, environment
Description

Chaque matin de l’été, Ellie et sa grand-mère vont à la plage. Ils se baignent, érigent des châteaux de sable et, pendant que Nonna lit, Ellie regarde les autres enfants jouer. Un jour, Ellie trouve le courage d’approcher une fille plus âgée qu'elle, Piper, qui s'amuse seule dans une barque échouée. Piper a un don : son imagination est si grande qu'elle emmène Ellie dans de grandes aventures, volant haut dans les airs, nageant au fond de l’océan et voyageant partout à bord de leur petit bateau bleu, leur bateau magique. Mais quand Piper doit s'en aller, Ellie découvre qu'elle aussi possède une imagination débordante.
