WONDER has inspired me to want to be a kinder person to everyone I meet. I want to stand and applaud everyone but especially RJ Palacio for writing such an amazing story.

I am a teacher of kids who are deaf and hard of hearing. I can't wait to share this book with them. After I finished, I was making a list of all the people I am anxious to share this book with. Right away, I called a student who has been out of school all this week to tell her and her family how amazing they are. This particular student has a very rare syndrome that is somewhat similar to Auggie's and her family is so great. She is a lovable kid who brings a smile to the faces of everyone that she meets. I am proud to know her and I realized how much more I need to express to her and all of my students how admirable they are for the strength they show everyday.

RJ Palacio has done a remarkable job of telling a story that is sure to inspire everyone to be kinder than necessary and to make the world a better place.
