To launch this effort, we are reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio. This is a young adult novel that will speak to readers of all ages. It is a book about a 10 year old home schooled boy with a facial deformity who decides to go school. It is heartwarming and has a powerful message about acceptance and inclusion.
We are encouraging everyone to read it. We can’t provide copies for everyone so we hope those who can will either buy it or find it in our libraries. However, we do have some that we can loan out. Talk to your principals if you want one. We’ll schedule a talk when we get back from the break. Enjoy!
