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!!!!

    Wonder is a good book to show the themes, prejudice and friendship. Many people befriend a deformed kid, August.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    2. 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.

    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.
