Wonder: 100% Kid-Approved Book Recommendation

As you probably know, STACKers love to read, so today we are featuring a book recommended by one of YOU! FriendlyMonkey10 recommends “a book that you have to read!!!” It’s Wonder by R.J. Palacio (for ages 8-12). Have you read this book? What did you think?

Read on for FriendlyMonkey’s review. . .Wonder book cover

Read Wonder by R.J. Palacio!!!!!!!!!! If you have not read this book, pick it up at the library and read it now!!! It’s a touching story about a boy named Auggie Pullman that was born with a facial deformity. Due to his frequent surgeries, he is homeschooled. For fifth grade though, he won’t be attending homeschool anymore. Because of his face, Auggie faces rudeness, mean comments, etc. . .  Can Auggie convince everyone that he is just like them even with his appearance and how will he do that? To figure out the answers, read the book!!!!

  1. best book ever

    I got this book last year and when I read it, I cried. This book is really emotional and really sad. Finally, people will know whats it like being like Auggie. This is a book that everybody need to read

    I love this book! My teacher at school is reading this book and 2 quarters towards the end, gets really dramatic because something bad happens, but then the bad thing turns into a good thing but you’ll get a little confused during that part because you don’t know what’s happening. Well read this book, it is very mind blowing, great book, I hope you get a chance to read this book!

    This book is a VERY good one and I highly recommend it! It is a very touching story with an interesting plot. It is easy to read for a lot of levels. So if you haven’t read it yet, I’d go to the library and pick it up now. also, there is a sequel with three stories inside. I haven’t read it yet, but I’ll read it soon.

  16. Brooke

    This book was so good. We read it in the class room and it was so good and the only classroom book i got into

  17. Raziyah

    this was a good book it shows tat everyone is the same and equal no matter their looks sizes or anything else.

  18. Akaylah

    This book has inspired me to look at people more than one way and to respect them no matter how they look , but usually I’m not really into this type of subject. I do recommend for other people to read this book.

  19. Vanessa

    This book is so amazing, and the characters have really funny names like,Doctor fart,and the principal. I Love This book.

  20. Rose

    I was thinking about reading Wonder but know i definitly want to read it after who sayed those things. Its seems like an interesting book to read. Thanks so much. :) :)

  21. Gwen

    The book was very interesting. I don’t normally read books that feature this subject. I like the book. It was sad at first though

  22. Codebookish14

    Wahh. This is so heartwarming and touching, and so meanigful, even those it has such a simple message. CHOOSE KIND!

  23. Scarlett

    I absolutely love this book. It shows lots of heart. R.J Palacios teaches us that it is always the inside what matters and you never have the right to judge someone. Highly recommend this book :)

  24. purplebutterfly3223

  25. sarah

    that is such a great book and heart touching it is a great example to kids to know how kids feel when they get bully

  26. Olivia

    hi im olivia I’m new to this website how do i join this club for books. I’m 46 so don’t argue with me

  27. Gracie

    That is a great take on this book. It takes a lot to fit in when you don’t have a deformity, but even harder when you do.

  28. Gracie

    We are reading this as a class read aloud and I have cried a fair few times. This book makes you think about how judge mental we ALL are. You can deny it, but in a way, we are critics. We all judge people, wether saying they’re good our bad. This book inspires me.

  29. fuschiachococlate80

    I love this book so much! It really taught me the lesson to not judge a book by its cover like in the story there is a little boy named Auggie. He has a disease and he cannot help the way his face looks and nobody liked him people hated him because he looked weird and he didn’t have any friends. It taught me to make sure to not judge a person by the way they look and look what is on the inside and not just the outside. This book is amazing!

    My teacher bought this book at the book fair,so we are reading it during dismissal. I love it so much.

  32. Fruity_tacos6565

    This was a great book. I read this book last year in 4th grade. A lady who volunteers at my school for writing group gave me the book to read, and I loved it. This book is very inspiring, and it just is a great book!! If you have not read Wonder, you have to rad it, because you will absolutely love this book!

    Girl I know right it was so sad,my friend is reading it now and she is seriously crying between each page

  37. aphroditefire31

    This book actually made me cry! I know that sounds wimpy but it did. It was hilarious, thrilling, and sad all at the same time. I will read it again, and I think you should too. It made me think about how lucky I am to be a healthy kid. I hope R.J Palacio writes another sequal with Agust’s point of view.

  38. Agnes

    I love Wondor. Best book I have ever read. I don’t know if it was all the drama, or the person that read it to me. My whole school voted it “Book Of The Year”. It is so outstanding.
