We’re All Wonders by R J Palacio
Auggie, from Wonder, returns in this picture book. “My mum says I’m unique. She says I’m a wonder!… But some people don’t see that I’m a wonder. All they see is how different I look.” Auggie shares how he likes to do ordinary things, like riding a bike and eating ice cream, he just doesn’t look ordinary. Other children stare and laugh at him. “They even say mean things behind my back. But I can hear them.”
