Faulkner, zombies, pandemics, Hillary Mantel, Linda Barry, Atwood, time travel, and Karr, I'm all over the map.
My 11 year-old daughter and I listened to this together. We enjoyed listening to the main character overcome his circumstances and his sister and friends' honest account of their experience. We highly recommend this book.
I am a 7th grade teacher and a mother of two ... this book presents a message that the world needs a little more of - "choose kindness!"
I listened to this book while rearranging the bedroom over a few days. It made the job easy. The book was moving,it was happy, it was sad, and spoiler alert: It had a wonderful ending. Great read.
I was a middle school teacher for 12 years and high school teacher for more than 5 years. I know how hard it is for children and teens to learn kindness and acceptance. "Wonder" is an inspiring story of love and friendship. Excellently written. Quite credible in terms of portraying typical middle school kids and their challenges. Julian's parents needed to have their eyes opened. Perhaps that's why Julian's precept involved a "fresh start". Tear-jerker of a story in many parts. Sweet! Well done!
Heartwarming, Amazing, Unforgettable
This book was simply amazing. It definitely makes you think about how you view others through the eyes of an individual with differences. Auggie will stay with me forever!
