If you're reading this book to a child, though, I'd say you can really read it to a child of any age. Hearing a variety of words as early as possible is extremely beneficial to young children (check out 1,000 books before Kindergarten), and children as young as three or four will probably be developing an understanding of concepts like bullying and kindness.(less)

I picked up We're All Wonders by R.J. Palacio last week. It's a story about Auggie Pullman, who was born with a facial difference. This is the children's version of the book written by the same author of Wonder.

The story is told from Auggie's perspective and he talks about how he understands that he isn't ordinary. He does ordinary things but doesn't look like an ordinary boy. He wants others to look at him for who he is, a wonder.

This book educates about the importance of empathy and being kin

Un libro ilustrado bastante breve que recoge lo más importante de Wonder. La lección de August y lo plantea de un modo más sencillo, para una audiencia más joven. Las ilustraciones de R.J. Palacio me encantan y pegan de manera increíble con lo que transmite la novela. ¡El regalo perfecto para les peques de la casa!

Recommends it for: parents, teachers, pre-schools
Lovely idea to introduce the boy whose story was told for somewhat older readers in the author’s earlier book Wonder.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Auggie is not called by name here, but WE know who he is. Well, we who are familiar with the first book do. This is a very simple prequel.

He’s only a little fellow here, which will help young children identify with his story. It will also help parents and teachers show kids that he likes lots of ordinary things that they like. He rides a bike and kicks a ball.

Winner of Goodreads' Choice Award for Picture Book.

One needs to realize that not everyone has the same traits as they have. Everyone is different. Everyone is unique. All of us has a Wonder in us.

“En la Tierra hay espacio suficiente para todo tipo de personas”.

We're All Wonders es, definitivamente, un libro que complementa con ilustraciones preciosas la historia de Auggie en Wonder. Obviamente, si no han leído el libro y se quieren preparar para la película, consigan la novela completa, no esta edición ilustrada que está más bien dirigida a niños pequeños.

Lo lindo de esta edición es que con pocas frases y las ilustraciones que la misma autora hizo, nos deja la sensación de alivio y de q

“En la Tierra hay espacio suficiente para todo tipo de personas.”

Las ilustraciones son preciosas, desde la primera hasta la última. ❤ Y poco más puedo decir sobre este libro. La belleza está dentro de él.
Based on the book Wonder. This story follows a boy who looks very different and is made fun of. He uses his imagination to escape. This book is about people being the same on the inside and having a different outside.

The art is fun here and the story is saying something profound. No one likes to be made fun of. We can't help the way we look.

It's also a great introduction to the book Wonder for kids. The nephew and niece had a lot of questions with this book.

‘We’re All Wonders’ is the latest addition to R. J. Palacio’s ‘Wonder’ series of books. This time it’s aimed at a much younger audience – it’s a picture story book with a small amount of accompanying text.

Billed as a brand new and original adventure for Auggie Pullman – this one’s all about Auggie and his dog Daisy. The story is a good one, well told and the illustrations (also by Palacio) are lovely. This new book (along with the other ‘Wonder’ books) is now very much a touchstone of the movem

Un hermoso libro álbum que nos ayuda a ver los sentimientos de un niño diferente que usa su imaginación para poder salir del horror de la sociedad que no comprende que no se puede cambiar el aspecto pero que si se puede cambiar la manera de mirara. Hay espacio para todos en la tierra. solo debemos entender el significado de amabilidad.

Each year my family reads all the Goodreads-award-nominated picture books, and we have been doing this for years. Everyone rates each book and adds a comment and it may (or may not) affect my overall rating. This is book #4 of 2017.

Tara: 3 stars. Nice. I liked the art. Similar message of lots of book but sweet.
Harry (12): 5 stars. Loved it! We're all wonders, yes! [Yes, you are, Harry!] Nice art.
Hank (11): 3.8 stars. I like how they show how everyone is different in some ways.
Lyra (10): 4 stars.

I loved this book. Every child that feels like they are different can read it and know they are not alone and they are special too. It talks about being different from the other kids, but still the same. I talks about how your feelings get hurt and using your imagination to escape. Then, it talks about how people can be accepting and kind all in simple words that kids can understand. Just right for helping little ones that may not always fit in easily with their peers understand that they are ju ...more

I absolutely love 'Wonder' so when I saw there was an illustrated book, I knew I had to read it. Based on the popular series by R.J. Palacio, this work introduces August Pullman to a younger audience. This beautifully illustrated book perfectly compliments the book that inspired it. After all, its never too early to start teaching about the importance of kindness and empathy. A book that is appropriate for all. Very sweet and cute and oh so re

A picture book with great intentions and questionable execution. If you haven't read the midgrade novel this book is based on, you'll have no idea what makes the main character different from other kids. (The roommate's assumption was that it was about a kid with one eye, because nothing in the story says otherwise.) The specificity of Auggie's disabilities disappear under a cloud of platitudes about how special we all are. For teachers and parents in the know, maybe that makes reading this pict ...more

Com a estreia do filme ''Wonder'' que chega hoje aos cinemas, decidi ler este pequeno livro infantil, de pouco texto mas com grande sentimento. Lê-se em 3 minutos mas a mensagem é muito importante. É um óptimo presente para as crianças neste Natal. Apesar da edição ser bonita, em capa dura e em formato grande, o preço é um pouco exagerado...quase 13€. Mesmo assim recomendo tanto este como o livro-mãe: Wonder/Milagre, editado pela ASA.

This is the abbreviated children’s picture book version of R.J. Palacio’s much acclaimed Wonder. It is about a boy with facial deformities who is felt to be a wonder by his immediate family, but he knows that other people look at him differently. He hears the unkind things they say behind his back and his feelings are hurt as a result. He escapes into an imaginary world on Pluto with strange space creatures. He realizes from this far away vantage point that the world is big enough for all kinds ...more

“The Earth is big enough for all kinds of people.”

This is a short, illustrated book about a boy named Auggie. He found himself different from others or to be precise, unique because of his looks.
However, this doesn't stop him from following his dream of becoming an astronaut as a kid and through his story, he wants people to understand that we are all beautiful and loved, and it's important to spread kindness and empathy towards one another.

The narrative of this story makes it sound so innocent
Having the the unique opportunity to have met R.J. Palacio as well as her book Wonder as one of our One Book One Town picks, I'm pleased to continue reading about this heartfelt story.

Oh, this book is so cute. I cried.❤

Avery brought it home from school because she says that it's one of her favorites. She said that it makes her sad that people laugh and bully people just because they look different and that she doesn't think that's a good thing. She says she likes that he says we're all wonders.

I've never read the middle grade book Wonder by Palacio. It's on my 'too read' mental list, but, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

I've heard people rave about that one. Now, the problem with trying to make that into a picture book is that there is only room for the moral, not for anything that might endear you to the character. I'm sure adult fans of the book will enjoy the picture book and sharing the picture book with young children because they already know the character. However, as someone

This book has a wonderful message of acceptance and seeing past surfaces and an easy-to-follow storyline, making R.J. Palacio's Wonder accessible to a younger audience.

Precautions: However, for a book that hinges completely on the main character Auggie's physical difference--a physical difference so notable that it causes his classmates to tease him--it felt odd that the style of illustration simplified and even caricatured Auggie's appearance to a face with a single eye. Not only does this see
