As part of our Bully Free Zone Book Club, I am reading Wonder by RJ Palacio. We are less than a third of the way through but hopefully your child has already shared some of their ideas with you. Below are some of the links I have shared with the students.
The book was inspired in part by Natalie Merchant’s song, Wonder.
Auggie – the main character, has Treacher-Collins syndrome. I have yet to share the full information about this syndrome with the students as the novel shares the particulars of his facial features over time, which in turn encourages us to change our thinking and feelings over time.
Wonder is a powerful novel and I encourage you to ask your child to share what’s happening in the book. You may just end up getting a copy for yourself in the end 😉
