Wonder by R. J. Palaciio
Come to the Wausaukee Library on June 21 at 4PM to discuss Wonder by R. J. Palacio. This heartbreaking but positive book has made the New York Times bestseller list and is heralded as one of kids’ best books. This is the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid. However, his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER begins from Auggie’s point of view. Soon the point of view switches to his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
Pick up a copy of the book at the Wausaukee Library and return on Wednesday, June 21st at 4PM to share your review of this extraordinary book.
