Book Overview

A gentle story that teaches how small acts of kindness can help children feel included and allow them to flourish, from esteemed author and speaker Trudy Ludwig and acclaimed illustrator Patrice Barton.

A simple act of kindness can transform an invisible boy into a friend.

Meet Brian, the invisible boy. Nobody in class ever seems to notice him or think to include him in their group, game, or birthday party . . . until, that is, a new kid comes to class.

When Justin, the new boy, arrives, Brian is the first to make him feel welcome. And when Brian and Justin team up to work on a class project together, Brian finds a way to shine.

Any parent, teacher, or counselor looking for material that sensitively addresses the needs of quieter children will find The Invisible Boy a valuable and important resource. Includes a discussion guide and resources for further reading.

   Impactful for LOUD boys, as well!
Our little boy is the LOUD in the classroom, so that this book is very impactful for him. It helps him to try to understand how his actions affect his classmates. We get to talk to him about how he thinks that other kids might feel when he acts in this way. He now says he doesn 't want to feel that way, so he wants to try to make sure that other children don 't feel that way either. I also really like the art work, as the invisible boy gets color as he feels more and more involved in the activities.
   Captivated my 5 year old and carries a nice message
My 5 year old son absolutely loved this book. In fact, the first day I bought it, I found him going back to this one and slowly flipping the pages himself absorbed, completely absorbed. It really does a great job teaching children the importance of including others and recognizing how other peers may feel. I love stories that have a strong but subtle message like this one without blatantly shoving their point in the child's face. The illustrations are very nice as well.
   Definitely NOT disappointed!
I bought this book after reading other reviews and I have to say that I was not disappointed! I teach 4th grade and part of our curriculum for the beginning of the year includes lessons on acceptance, kindness, bullying, etc. My students were really connected to the story and the discussion that followed was rich and engaging. I am thrilled to have it in my library!
   It gives a great message about kindness and caring that is presented well ...
A tremendously common presentation of a common problem for many children. It gives a great message about kindness and caring, which is well represented by the pictures. It is also very teachable.
   Just what we were looking for
This was one of my son's favorite books. He really identified with the main character and identified with the main character. The book really opened the floor for us to be able to talk about his feelings and how to overcome the feeling of being invisible and be able to make friends. He also loved the illustrations.
   Good read
My daughter is a typical kid and when we read it with her, it seemed to her that she had an emotional connection with the invisible boy as if she felt bad for him. Hopefully she understands the meaning and includes all the children in her class.
   If your kid is the invisible boy/girl
This story where it gives a good message to popular children, or even shy children, this book is not for the socially adjusted kid, not for the bullied kid and here is why. There is no mention of this invisible boy ever attempting to include himself. He never tries to be friendly over and over again or do kind and thoughtful things. He has no personal power, he is a bystander to his own life, even in his art. Why not have an invisible boy who decided to be kind to others and get out of his comfort zone and invite someone to do art with him? Why not teach this invisible boy how to change his own story with some basic social skills, like smiling at people. He is a bystander and a bit of a victim. This invisible child was me as a kid, and if your child has self-confidence issues, you should not read it to them, it won 't help them learn to advocate for their own social life.
   Love this book!
This book helps children learn through story and wonderful illustrations what it feels like to be alone in the midst of community whether in a school setting or a camp setting.
   Bought this for a second grade class where I volunteer ...
Bought this for a second grade class where I volunteer to help children with reading. I'm sure there are children who can identify well with a feeling of being invisible. It highlighted both the aloneness of a child and the kindness of another, who helped him to become visible.
   This is absolutely her favorite right now
For my granddaughter, Bought this book for my granddaughter. This is now her favorite thing to do absolutely. She loves the story line, she loves the fact that the little boy ended with a friend. Although she is only 6, she can relate to how children can feel very left out at school. After reading the story to her, she told me that if a new kid comes into her class room, she would make sure that she became their friend. I love that ''.
