"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The sheer truth of Auggie's journey is what meant the most to me. There are so many small moments that struck me to the core - e.g. Auggie's feelings about Halloween, the way Auggie has an easier time when his classmates understand that there's more to him than his face, Auggie's struggle to move past his need for coddling, even the food that Auggie eats. The most emotional moment for me came toward the end of the book when Auggie's father tells him that he loves the way Auggie looks, because that it exactly how my husband and I feel about our son.
I wish that everyone would read this book, because it will help them understand the humanity of my son and everyone like him.
I gave it five stars for kids😊
Then, of course, there are books that should have no age restrictions. Books where the message is so necessary to everyday life and development that it ought to be required reading for all. Wonder is one of those books. Following Auggie through his days, and then the other narrators, I was quickly reminded how much just a little kindness and understanding can mean…. and how often it can be lacking these days. We live in a world of anger, bullying, hurt and hatred; and we need a bit of softness… a little kindness. I loved the characters so much. I cried for them, and celebrated accomplishments. This was just so beautifully written, I couldn’t put it down. I want to be more like Summer, who fist came up to Auggie out of kindness but was able to see him- the nice and funny kid that’s just awesome. I liked that she didn’t allow what other’s thought to sway her as to whom to hang out with- this is a big thing in middle school when peer pressure abounds and everyone wants to be accepted. She showed a kindness and loyalty that I admire. For me, this is a five star book plus one for creativity.
On the adult content scale, there is some very minor language and miniscule violence. It barely registers as a one really.
The book is has been out for ages. I want to get it for basically every kid I know and add the journal as well.
