I haven't yet read Wonder but it's next on my pile of books to read so I can't compare the books as of this point. My twins are five and both said they love this book! It's a beautiful picture book about Auggie, a boy who was born a bit different from other kids but he wants to be accepted for who he is. The pictures are beautiful and the story encourages young children to think about the importance of being kind to everyone which is a great concept to begin early in life!
We've read this book a number of times already and my kids really pay attention to it while I'm reading it to them. Kids may have questions about the story so it's important for parents to help explain it. Overall, I feel this is a great book and I'm glad our school is reading this together!
Lovely idea to introduce the boy whose story was told for somewhat older readers in the author’s earlier book "Wonder".
Auggie is not called by name here, but WE know who he is. Well, we who are familiar with the first book do. This is a very simple prequel.
He’s only a little fellow here, which will help young children identify with his story. It will also help parents and teachers show kids that he likes lots of ordinary things that they like. He rides a bike and kicks a ball.
The artwork is based on the imaginative cover of the original book, and our little fellow says other kids make fun of him because:
"I just don't look ordinary. I don't look like other kids."
[I have included an illustration in my Goodreads review.]
But his mother says he’s a wonder, and Daisy, his beloved dog, thinks he’s a wonder, too! He imagines flying off in a rocket with Daisy, and the illustrations of him in space and visiting Pluto and some “old friends” who are certainly don't look ordinary either, except to each other.
He looks back at earth, and when he goes back, he hopes everyone can change the way they see.
“If they do, they’ll see that I’m a wonder.
And they’ll see that they are wonders, too.
We’re all wonders.”
[I have included an illustration in my Goodreads review that says: "Look with kindness and you will always find wonder."]
Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin/Puffin for the copy for review from which I've selected a couple of illustrations.
