I See You: A Story for Kids About Homelessness and Being Unhoused

She is “invisible” to everyone around her…except one boy.

Homelessness is a problem that is both very visible and, in many ways, invisible. I See You is a wordless picture book that depicts a homeless woman who is not seen by everyone around her — except for a little boy.

Over the course of a year, the boy is witness to all that she endures. Ultimately, in a gesture of compassion, the boy acknowledges her in an exchange in which he sees her and she experiences being seen.

In a Note for Parents, Educators, and Neighbors  there are discussion questions and additional resources about helping the homeless. Open the door for kids and parents to begin a conversation about homelessness.---from the publisher
