The Wonder of Wonder

Have you read Wonder by R.J. Palacio yet? If not, put this on your must-read list this instant!

This inspiring story about August Pullman, 5th grader at Beecher Prep, is for readers of all ages.  As if starting middle school isn't hard enough, this year is also his very first year in a mainstream school.  All Auggie wants is to be treated as an ordinary kid, but having been born with severe facial deformities makes him anything but ordinary in the eyes of his unsympathetic classmates.  Auggie, our young hero, not only overcomes bullying at Beecher Prep, but also the adversity he has faced his entire life.

After you've read the book, share your story about bullying and sign the pledge to Choose Kind!  Pledge to Choose Kind is an anti-bullying campaign inspired by the novel, Wonder.
