Do kids see things that we don't see?

I know this question might be dumb, but my little girl is 3 years old and she is always talking about, mommy do you she her, and I'm like she who, and she is like the girl standing right there, and when I look I don't see nothing, I don't believe in ghost or any of that stuff, but my little baby is always seeing something, so I am asking do kids see things that we don't?

Young children like your daughter have a wonderful imagination and they imagine they can see ghosts and fairies. Children are told fairy tales and read picture books. These increase a child's rich imagination. Some children are told about a tooth fairy. Childhood is a sweet time of playing with toys, getting on well with family members and other children. Your little girl could be encouraged to tell stories that you could write down for her. This would increase her literacy skills and let her get a head start when she goes to school.
