The Invisible Boy

byTrudy Ludwig

Illustrated by Patrice Barton



Our November book of the month is The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig.

Have You Ever Felt Invisible When You’re Around Other People?
Meet Brian, the invisible boy. Nobody 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.

In her book, The Invisible Boy, Trudy Ludwig shows how small acts of kindness can help children feel included and allow them to flourish. Any parent, teacher, or counselor looking for material that sensitively addresses the needs of quieter children will find this gentle story a valuable and important resource.
