Auggie's ready to go to school, or at least he thinks he is in Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Auggie Pullman likes ice cream and Xbox, just like every other kid, but he doesn't look like everyone else. How will Auggie survive his first year at Beecher Prep? Will he find a group of friends he can really trust? The only way to find out is to read his story and marvel in wonder at how Auggie handles it all.
My 10 year old needed to read this book for school. We were in a hurry to get it because she needed in two days after she brought home her assignment. We looked it up on Targets website, it was on sale and had only one left. We reserved it and went to pick it up not even half an hour later. We watched the movie Wonder, but reading the book is always so much better. MY daughter absolutely loved this book. Would definitely recommend to others.
My kids & I first read this 3 years ago. It’s a beautiful story about differences & acceptance. I think it should be required reading for all kids (& their parents)! The characters are well written & relatable. When we finished, we lent ours to one of my daughter’s teachers (who loved it). Delightfully, the 5th graders at my kids’ school all read this in class this year. We bought this copy for a classmate who requested it for the holiday gift exchange. I’m looking forward to reading it with my kids again (& I’m not sure I’ve ever said that about a book before)!
