School-Wide Read: "We're All Wonders" by R. J. Palacio
As we begin the year by building our classroom communities and promoting caring and acceptance of everyone, all Boone students and staff will be reading and discussing the book “We're All Wonders” by R.J. Palacio. We encourage everyone to further discuss the book’s message at home. Here is a brief review of the book:
The unforgettable bestseller Wonder, soon to be a major motion picture, has inspired a nationwide movement to Choose Kind. Now parents and educators can introduce the importance of choosing kind to younger readers with this gorgeous picture book, featuring Auggie and Daisy on an original adventure, written and illustrated by R. J. Palacio.
