The Invisible Boy | Trudy Ludwig
14 posts | 12 read
A simple act of kindness can transform an invisible boy into a friend... 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. From esteemed author and speaker Trudy Ludwig and acclaimed illustrator Patrice Barton, this gentle story 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 The Invisible Boy a valuable and important resource. Includes backmatter with discussion questions and resources for further reading.

This would be great to read in a young classroom. It shows how easy it is to leave out those who have many great helpful traits.

Brian was so invisible even to his teacher! The other students stick out to her allowing her to miss Brian — the invisible boy.

The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig illustrated by Patrice Barton, 2013. This book tells the story of a little boy named Brian who feel ignored and invisible in the classroom. When a new kid joins the class he finally starts to feel recognized. The illustrations have a simplistic and muted look that perfectly show how Brian feels all the way through as his world grows brighter and more colorful.

Oh, this one hits hard. Who hasn‘t felt alone and unseen? This prompted a great discussion with my kids about how most people just want to be noticed and understood. They want to be seen. When he wishes for the hole to swallow him up, I broke.

If you're looking for a great children's book this Summer, check this one out! I give it 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Really adorable story for accelerated readers. Love the illustrations too! It's about a lonely boy named Brian who loves to draw and just wants to be included. I actually teared up reading this book. This book shows the power of little kind acts going a long way. I will definitely be getting this book for my nephew!

This one made me cry! A beautifully written and illustrated children's book about a little boy who feels invisible. I love how he gains color in the illustrations when he gets the contact from his peers that he so desperately desires. A heartwarming tale that helps teach kids the importance of being kind to one another.

No promises, but I'll try to make this my last #tfob post until next year. Here is my husband. I could not drag him out of the picture book area today. He is so cute.

"Brian looks at the floor, wishing he could draw a hole right there to swallow him up." This science fiction picture book is a great resource for discussing inclusion, kindness and the importance of a positive classroom community. I love the idea of creating a "random acts of kindness" school-wide campaign after reading this book: https://www.randomhouse.com/teachers/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/TheInvisibleBoy_... #UCFLAE3414sp17

DrSpalding I think this book is realistic fiction. Looking at the resource, confirms this for me. The last page of the resource shows a large number of books regarding the important topic of bullying. Everyone should check this out! 3y
ericai i love the random acts of kindness campaign you mentioned. it's so important to teach our students the importance of being kind. i definitely want to read this book! 3y
DrSpalding Excellent to hear @ericai #choosekind 3y

Alisoncavicchi @DrSpalding I had thought science fiction because of the inclusion of the supernatural concept of invisibility ? Or would it still be realistic despite this feature? 3y
AmberC What a great book and discussion starter for students. I also like that the resource includes more book suggestions on the topic for interested or older children. 3y
KaylaC This seems like a very good book to show to my future students, you need to teach them when they are little about the importance of kindness and making sure everyone feels included and welcomed. 3y
