“The Can’t-Be-Seen Who Couldn’t Squawk”
Dr. William’s story of Nate, the young Can’t-Be-Seen who had difficulty with squawking, is unfortunately
a familiar tale for many children who stutter. From Nate’s attempts to hide his squawking difficulties, to
the physician’s advice to Nate’s parents to ignore them, and to the teasing Nate receives at school,
these parallel many children’s journey who stutter. Fortunately, Nate meets Mr. Paul who introduces
him to other Can’t-Be-Seens who have difficulty squawking and Nate realizes he is not alone. He also
helps Nate realize the power and beauty of squawking, whether it is a perfect squawk or not! As Nate
gradually accepts how he squawks, he avoids less and feels better about himself as a squawker.

This book is an excellent resource for SLPs who work with children who stutter and parents of children
who stutter. The illustrations are beautiful and child friendly. It provides a non-threatening avenue for
discussing stuttering, avoidance strategies, teasing, and acceptance. At the conclusion of the story the
author includes valuable information for parents, along with discussion questions for the child who
stutters. The utility of this book for helping ease a child into acceptance or for helping parents
understand how to interact with their child is beyond measure.

The Can’t Be Seen Who Learned to Squawk
By Dale Williams and Susannah Brown (illustrator)

Children will love this charming story, told in verse, about a “Can’t Be Seen” (Nate) who learned to squawk. The poor bird has many trials and tribulations because of his inability to talk (or squawk), including being bullied by others. When a new teacher introduces Nate to other children who also squawk, he feels much better. Nate’s squawks can sound different and that’s okay! The beautiful illustrations bring the story to life, challenging readers to reflect on the true meaning behind this delightful tale.
