“Unfortunately we live in a world where children are often cruelly forced to conform to social norms in order to ‘fit in’, making them unhappy and depriving the world of their uniqueness. Invisible Isabelle shares with children an enlightening message of self-esteem that will empower belief in oneself, and that individuality is who we are and important to the entire world.”
– Laurie Monopoli, Child Development Specialist & founder of “The Learning Station”
“Bullying and self-esteem are difficult issues for young children. Isabelle learns from her teacher that being invisible isn’t the answer. Wendy Sefcik nurtures acceptance and the art of self-expression in this tender book.”
– Beth Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of ChicGalleria.com
"Invisible Isabelle is a charming story and delightfully illustrated by an obviously talented young writer and illustrator!! My daughters and granddaughters loved it! Meaningful and adorable!"
Isabelle adored designing and creating clothes, so when she received a sewing box for her seventh birthday, she set to work making a special and unique outfit for herself. She was delighted with her 'cuckoo' ensemble, but her classmates teased her and laughed at her for wearing something different from the normal fashions popular at school. Devastated Isabelle ran to the restroom and threw away her new clothes, hairstyle and accessories. Without her unique outfit, she blended so much into the background that she quite literally vanished. Scared and confused, Isabelle confided in her imaginative art teacher, who explained to Isabelle that the problem was that she had lost her self-expression. She encouraged her to embrace her unique style and to wear her beautiful creations with pride. Isabelle began designing her own fashions again, and although not everyone liked them, she was confident and proud enough to go her own way.
