Auggie tells his story in Wonder, but you also get to hear the voices of his classmates and family as they walk this journey together: some for him, some against him, some stuck within their own inner turmoil. This very real story will certainly hold your interest and captivate you through Auggie’s bravery, humor and the kindness and companionship of a true friend. This book both allows us to look at ourselves and look outside of ourselves into the lives of others. I recommend this book for students in fourth grade and up, If you choose to read it, please share with me along the way.
“The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you.” -Auggie Pullman
