Read the Book, See the Movie

"When given the choice between being right and being kind. Choose kind."

Mr Browne's September Precept. Wonder by RJ Palacio

Wonder by RJ Palacio is one of our favourite reads.

Choose Kind is one of our favourite quotes.

We are very excited to learn that the movie release of the novel will be in November 2017. Some of our girls have been making graphic book reviews in preparation.

Wonder Book Review

Auggie is a ten year old boy who has been born with a craniofacial difference. He has been home-schooled while undergoing numerous surgeries but it is now time to go to school. He starts Yr 5 and the book takes us on his journey from his first day at school to the last one for the year. This book is literally a wonder to read!

The story of Auggie and his navigation of his first year at school is an aspiring one. It’s both sad and affirming and raises some pretty complex questions about perseverance, bullying, love, fate, resilience, coping with adversity and support.

Read it and see what you think.  You won’t be the same person having read it.

Join the Choose Kind community by visiting the Tumblr site and find out more about the novel and the affect it has on its readers.
