What is We’re All Wonders about?

The unforgettable bestseller Wonder inspired a nationwide movement to Choose Kind. Introduce the importance of choosing kind to younger readers with this gorgeous picture book. It features characters Auggie and Daisy on an original adventure.

A boy whose face doesn’t look ordinary likes to do the same things that other kids do. But the other kids don’t see past his facial difference. They don’t invite him to play, and they point at him and call him names.

When he is feeling especially lonely, he and his dog put on space helmets and fly through the atmosphere. They land on Pluto, where they play with old friends. As they float back to Earth, the boy sees a world big enough for all kinds of people.

The boy’s mother calls him unique and a wonder, and he begins to think about the other kids and how they might change their view of him.

Kindness is the underlying theme in this nod to a younger Auggie Pullman, the main character in Wonder.
