We’re All Wonders

Author + Illustrator: R.J. Palacio

Published in 2017 by Knopf Books for Young Readers

We’re All Wonders was written in response to an outpouring of love for R.J. Palacio’s middle grade novel Wonder and countless requests for a picture book version to share with younger readers. We’re All Wonders introduces younger readers to Auggie Pullman, a young boy who was born with facial abnormalities (and who is the beloved protagonist of the novel Wonder). Auggie feels like an ordinary kid, but others do not always see him as one because of his extraordinary face. The vibrant illustrations make this an especially fascinating read with a powerful message that children can connect to. This story is an incredible way to have a conversation about acceptance, belonging, empathy, and compassion.
