" RJ Palacio captures the themes of her powerful best selling YA novel Wonder in this picture book that she has written and illustrated. So what if you are normal in every way except for the way you look? How would you cope with that and how others might treat you? In this version, Palacio makes these questions very accessible to young readers. It can be a great catalyst to important discussions in a primary classroom. It would be a great addition to every classroom collection. " Read Ribbet said.
" Great picture book that celebrates differences. Serves as a great introduction to Wonder for younger students or an intro to Wonder " Linda said.
" 3.5...I think my knowledge and appreciation of the original middle grade novel deepens my understanding and connection to this picture book. While this can be read with children to talk about difference and disability, I wonder if younger kids who had not read the original book would need some background knowledge first. " Aliza Werner said.
