We're All Wonders Reviewed by Jeneka Ossa
We're All Wonders by R.J. Palacio is about a boy, whose only wish is to be considered ordinary, wonders why he is treated differently just because he looks different than his classmates.
He takes a rocket ship to outer space and lands on Pluto. He sees the Earth from a distance, realizing that the Earth is big enough for ALL kinds of people.
He also begins to understand the fact that he "can't change the way he looks, but maybe, just maybe, people will change the way they see." And they will see, that like everyone else, he is a wonder too.
A remarkable story about a remarkable boy, this book provides the opportunity to teach empathy at a time when it is more important than ever.
