The Children's Book Review on R.J. Palacio's Wonder
WONDER by R.J. Palacio | A ten-year-old born with extreme facial abnormalities—who has been through numerous surgeries and has been homeschooled all of his life—enters fifth grade at a private Manhattan middle school. It's heartbreaking, funny, and wonderful in every way. I seriously think it should be required reading for all upper elementary and middle school students. And their parents and older siblings too :)
Wonder by R. J. Palacio. May be written for kids but worth reading even as an adult.
Book Club Indonesia: Book Review: Wonder by R.J. Palacio
This was a incredible book that really opens your eyes. A book worth reading!
This is my current read-aloud in 5th grade and my students and I have great discussion about respecting others and acceptance.
I used this link as I read aloud Wonder this past school year. It has great links to a lot of the song lyrics mentioned and much more!
This book fostered a year of acceptance in our classroom last year.
