The IF (Invisible Friend) Project is devoted to exploring the wild and wonderful ways children relate to the “see-through” world around them. Our team has interviewed children in 5 countries: US, Kenya, Nepal, Malawi, and in the Dominican Republic.
In addition to interviewing children and parents about imaginary companions, we have asked them about other invisible beings, from angels and gods to ancestors, spirits, fairies, and even Santa Claus, depending on the culture.
A book based upon the project will be out in the summer of 2019. You can pre-order from Amazon.
