I recently finished reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I fell in love with Palacio’s uncomfortably real characters. I think I saw a little of myself in each, even August. I recommend this middle grade novel to any child and especially to teachers. This story will open the eyes of your students to the struggle and feelings of those around them. What incredible life-changing discussions can develop from this story.
I laughed, I cried and I wondered – what would I do? how would I act? what if this was my child? my wonder?
