I See You is a wordless picture book that depicts a homeless woman who is unseen 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 through an exchange in which he sees her and she experiences being seen. This book opens the door for kids and parents to begin a conversation about homelessness. In a "Note for Parents, Educators, and Neighbours", there are discussion questions and additional resources about helping the homeless. Ages 4-8.

"Michael Genhart's wordless picture book is about heart, compassion and connecting with others. It is the perfect medium to open the door for children and parents to begin a conversation about the many kinds of homelessness. It also encourages children to study the detailed illustrations a little more carefully and use their imaginations to tell the story. The boy is an inspiration and reminder of a child's untainted generosity. The emotion and candor captured by this story are beautifully brought to life in Joanne Lew-Vriethoff's heartfelt and vivid illustrations." --Children's Books Heal

"This wordless tale depicts the trials of a homeless woman whom only one boy can see. For a year, only he sees all that she endures having no home and very few personal belongings. Not to mention, not a soul reaches out to help her. Finally, in a heartwarming display of compassion, the little boy acknowledges her with a simple gesture. "I See You" is an ideal conversation starter to approach the difficult subject of homelessness." --Parent.co


"Exceptional, unique, thoughtful, thought-provoking, and providing a thoroughly entertaining story with an underlying and positive message, I See You is especially and unreservedly recommended for family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library social issue-themed picture book collections." --Midwest Book Review
