I am happy to work in the Children’s Room where I have the opportunity to recommend a favorite book: Wonder. This is a powerful story for middle-schoolers and, well...for all of us. August Pullman, who has severe facial abnormalities, is about to start school for the first time as a public school fifth grader. The story is told from Auggie’s perspective as well as several other points of view. This book is full of great characters, lots of emotion and the impact of kindness. I can’t wait until my grandchildren are older and I can share it with them!
