Auggie is going into public school for the first time in his life. This is a nerve racking experience for him because he has a facial deformity, and he knows he is going to stand out. Auggie is bullied, but he also makes friends along the way who help him. Auggie inspires the people around him, and he is awarded at an assembly at the end of the year. The book revolves around different character's point of views, so the reader gets to know what Auggie thinks and what other people think about Auggie. I believe this would be a good book for children because it can teach them how damaging bullying can be. I read this book a few years ago, and I really loved the characters in this book. They are very well written, and it is easy to empathize with them.

Shows the power of friendship. Shows to never make fun of anyone's differences

Wonder is a book about August Pullman, a soon to be middle schooler with a facial deformity. He is incredibly smart and kind, but struggles making friends due to his facial appearance. A teacher can share this book with their ELAR classroom, it has an amazing plot. Students would also be able to do many character analysis on the many interesting characters. ( )

Read this book once but I'm definitely down for reading it again. This book made me feel so much for the characters and I recommend everyone to read this one as it's a very meaningful read. Prepare some tissues too by the way ;)

The movie is actually a good depiction of the book so after reading the book, check the movie out! ( )

Dieses Buch begeistert alle Altersgruppen. Das oft genutzte Motiv, dass es auf die inneren Werte ankommt, wird hier neu und ohne mahnenden Zeigefinger umgesetzt. Durch wechselnde Perspektiven kann der Leser nicht nur die Gefühle und Handlungen Auggies, sondern auch die seines Umfeldes verstehen. Der Leser entwickelt sich mit den sympathischen Charakteren. Die flüssige Sprache und die zahlreichen Details lassen die Geschichte persönlich und lebensnah wirken. Der Roman berührt den Leser und regt zum Nachdenken an.

Epigraph
Doctors have come from distant cities/just to see me/stand over my bed/disbelieving what they're seeing,
They say I must be one of the wonders/of god's own creation/and as far as they can see they can offer/no explanation
-Natalie Marchant, "Wonder"
Dedication
For Russell, Caleb, and Joseph
First words
I know I'm not an ordinary ten-year-old kid.
Quotations
Now here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with one's heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye. -Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince
Mr. Browne's Precepts: September - When given the choice between being righ or being kind, choose kind. -Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
February - It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers. -James Thurber
March - Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much. -Blaise Pascal
May - Do all the good you can,/By all the means you can,/In all the ways you can,/In all the places you can,/At all the times you can,/To all the people you can,/As long as you ever can. -John Wesley's Rule
Shall we make a new rule of life...always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary? -J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird
"Kinder than is necessary," he [Mr. Tushman] repeated. What a marvelous line, isn't it? Kinder than is necesary. Because it's not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed. Why I love that line, that concept, is that it reminds me that we carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of knindness. -Palacio, p. 300
... Joseph recognized the face of God in human form. It glimmered in their kindness to him, it glowed in their keenness, it hinted in their caring, ideed it caressed in their gaze. - Christopher Nolan, Under the Eye of the Clock
"It glimmered in their kindness to him ... Such a simple thing, kindness. Such a simple thing. A nice word of encouragment given when needed. An act of friendship. A passing smile." -Palacio, p. 300.
It's like how compass needles always point north, no matter which way you're facing. All those eyes are compasses, and I'm like the North Pole to them. [Auggie, 206]
I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives. [Auggie, 231]
