The chapter book Wonders has taken teachers and students alike by storm, with its positive message about finding out who we are and being proud of our uniqueness. The author, R. J. Palacio wanted to extend this message by writing a picture book for younger children called, We're All Wonders. This is an exceptional story for hitting home the idea that we are all different and we should embrace these differences by showing kindness towards each other.
