15,000 children experiencing disadvantage to receive #ImagineNation playbook

Next week we will start delivering an additional 15,000 copies of the beautifully produced #ImagineNation playbook to children who are in real need and experiencing disadvantage, living in direct provision centres or emergency accommodation, children experiencing homelessness, children’s hospitals and children’s charities all over Ireland. The #ImagineNation playbook was created in partnership between An Post and Children’s Books Ireland and with the kind and generous support of The Community Foundation for Ireland, we can now bring the playbook to even more children alongside colouring materials so those children who are most in need can experience the joy of books, reading and creativity.

The #ImagineNation playbook brings together Ireland’s best children’s writers and illustrators who have created activities, puzzles, and colouring-in pages that we hope will delight, entertain and spark creativity amongst children. Even more pages of fun activities have been added to the playbook from leading artists and illustrators including Malachy Doyle, Andrew Whitson, Peter Donnelly, Debbie Thomas and Alan Nolan.

Download your #ImagineNation playbook here today. You will also find each page available to download individually on the #ImagineNation page our website. Do post your creations using #ImagineNation on social media and tag An Post, Children’s Books Ireland and The Community Foundation for Ireland to show us your creativity and all the fun you’re having with your #ImagineNation.

We would like to thank The Community Foundation for Ireland for supporting this initiative to bring more copies of #ImagineNation to children all over Ireland.
