We're All Wonders
In Wonder, R.J. Palacio’s debut middle-grade novel featuring Auggie, a fifth-grade boy born with a facial deformity, the author delivered a powerful message about the importance of kindness, tolerance, and acceptance. She will now introduce Auggie to a younger audience in We’re All Wonders, her first picture book.
With spare, powerful text and richly-imagined illustrations, We're All Wonders shows readers what it's like to live in Auggie's world - a world in which he feels like any other kid, but he's not always seen that way. The story taps into every child's longing to belong, and to be seen for who they truly are. It's the perfect way for families and teachers to talk about empathy, difference and kindness with young children.
