Watch these two books about children who feel invisible.  Compare and contrast the two characters' experiences.  Everyone feels invisible sometimes. Reflect on times in which you have felt invisible or visible. What do those experiences look like? What is it that you hear that makes them feel invisible or visible?  Have a conversation with adults around you about times they have felt invisible and visible.
