5 reasons to read wonder

  1. The book reminds us that kids sometimes can be harsh. Makes me wonder how I survived elementary with a few scrathes. Literally! The story follows four, 5th graders and their struggle to get threw middle school with some unique circumstances.

2 Don’t judge a book by its cover, applies to the cover of the book and to the characters in the book. A lot of the characters express how being friends to Auggie, sends people prejudgment because of his physical looks.

3.The book makes you cry, literally the book makes us feel what the characters in the book feel and can’t help but shed some tears.

4.Its children’s novel but it shows adults some major lesson.

5.Lastly “I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives”
