"You guys all know I love Wonder.
You know I love Auggie & Me.
Well now I love We're All Wonders.

R.J. Palacio released an illustrated storybook outlining the main idea of Wonder. I love that she created Wonder for an even younger audience. By creating this storybook, she 's opening the eyes of children everywhere by teaching them that people are different. Young kids need books like these to learn how to associate with people of all colors, abilities, features.... It just creates an atmosphere for both the child with disabilities and the child who has never experienced another child differing from themselves. I love love love this book and I hope that it takes off in the same way as Wonder did!

Check out my review of the hit, Wonder!

"This book has a wonderful message of acceptance and seeing past surfaces and an easy-to-follow storyline, making R.J. Palacio's Wonder accessible to a younger audience.

Precautions: However, for a book that hinges completely on the main character Auggie's physical difference--a physical difference so notable that it causes his classmates to tease him--it felt odd that the style of illustration simplified and even caricatured Auggie's appearance to a face with a single eye. Not only does this seem in poor taste as a way to represent people who "look different" (stripping them of nose, mouth, etc), I think it also forecloses the possibility of really rich conversation with children about opening their eyes to people who our superficial culture has informed them are "ugly." Auggie, as he's represented here, doesn't actually look all that out of the ordinary, and certainly not conventionally "ugly." He just looks like a cartoon. All that being said, most kids and parents will still likely appreciate the message of acceptance.

Ages: 7-10

" Younger readers will be able to learn a great deal from this simply told story about how the actions of children can reduce a child's sense of belonging and ability to 'fit in'. Palacio spreads an important message about the need to be kind and non judgmental towards others- how someone's appearance does not impact their ability, they should be just as valued as everyone else. " said.

" Un abrebocas perfecto para enganchar a los más pequeños al mundo de August y todas las cosas que ahí pueden aprender. " said.

" A nice introduction for younger readers who may not have much experience with kids who are "different". " said.

" Sappy, sappy, sappy. Did I mention sappy? " said.

"Oh, this book is so cute. I cried.❤️

Avery brought it home from school because she says that it's one of her favorites. She said that it makes her sad that people laugh and bully people just because they look different and that she doesn't think that's a good thing. She says she likes that he says we're all wonders.

"Look with kindness and you will always find wonder."
" said.

" Having the the unique opportunity to have met R.J. Palacio as well as her book Wonder as one of our One Book One Town picks, I'm pleased to continue reading about this heartfelt story. -"I know I can't change the way I look. BUT maybe, just maybe, people can change the way they see." CHOOSE KIND. " said.
