If you are a 4th - 6th grader and love to read, discuss, and explore literature, then this is the book club for you! In this course, we will read Wonder by RJ Palacio. Gather together with other students to discuss this story that shows us that kindness brings us together no matter how far apart we are. Book Synopsis: August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. Beginning from Auggie’s point of view and expanding to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others, the perspectives converge to form a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope.
