I didn't really like the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio but I did like the many precepts included in each chapter of the book. This is a collection of precepts (365 to be exact) based off of the original story. ( )

Great! If I was a teacher I would make this required reading or read aloud to younger students. Both these "Wonder" books are a gem.

This is collection of precepts that were put together and most of them are very inspirational. The author cites the origin of the precepts, indicating its author and technically those precepts should be a collection received by a teacher named Mr. Browne from his students, as per his request as an assignment. The interesting fact is that after the school year was done, the students still kept sending precepts to Mr. Browne for years after leaving school. And the author shows in this new book some interaction between Mr. Browne and other students, showing how much he cares for them.
This is a very well written book, excellent idea e very inspirational. I recommend this book to the permanent library of any reader who wants to spend some quality time with a nice reading material. They will not be disappointed. ( )

This is a wonderful collection of wisdom and precepts, accompanied by commentary from Mr. Browne, of Palacio's "Wonder." Mr. Browne seems like a model teacher and his comments provide both a model and motivation for real life teachers. ( )

I actually took almost a whole year to read this book. It certainly has lots of precepts to ponder and words to live by. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553499041, Hardcover)

In the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Wonder, readers were introduced to memorable English teacher Mr. Browne and his love of precepts. Simply put, precepts are principles to live by, and Mr. Browne has compiled 365 of them—one for each day of the year—drawn from popular songs to children’s books to inscriptions on Egyptian tombstones to fortune cookies. His selections celebrate kindness, hopefulness, the goodness of human beings, the strength of people’s hearts, and the power of people’s wills. Interspersed with the precepts are letters and emails from characters who appeared in Wonder. Readers hear from Summer, Jack, Charlotte, Julian, and Amos.
 
There’s something for everyone here, with words of wisdom from such noteworthy people as Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., Confucius, Goethe, Sappho—and over 100 readers of Wonder who sent R. J. Palacio their own precepts.
