The Invisible Boy
Updated: Aug 23
Do you see me now?
Little Brian is a quiet boy in the class. He gets no attention from his classmates. Not just his classmate, even the teacher has trouble seeing him, making him invisible. His classmates occupy a lot of space while he stays quiet throughout the day. Then, one day, a new student, Justin, joins the class. Justin quickly mingles with the class. At lunch, he eats Korean food, and his friends laugh about it while Brian still stays invisible and watches everything. The next day, Brian drops a note in Justin’s cubby, appreciating how good his food looked. How did Justin react? Did Brian become visible?
We picked this book for its title. The book presents how a minor act of kindness by one person can change everyone else’s perception. It is more powerful when conveyed through kids. The illustrations are very well done.
The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig is a beautiful book promoting inclusiveness.
