ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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.

Over 5 million people have fallen in love with Wonder and have joined the movement to Choose Kind. Now younger readers can meet Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face, and his beloved dog, Daisy.

Countless fans have asked R. J. Palacio to write a book for younger readers. With We’re All Wonders, she makes her picture-book debut as both author and artist, with a spare, powerful text and striking, richly imagined illustrations. Palacio shows readers what it’s like to live in Auggie’s world―a world in which he feels like any other kid, but he’s not always seen that way.

We’re All Wonders may be Auggie’s story, but it taps into every child’s longing to belong, and to be seen for who they truly are. It’s the perfect way for families and educators to talk about empathy and kindness with young children.

R. J. Palacio - The Wonder Collection: Wonder, The Julian Chapter, Pluto, Shingaling

Wonder
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?

The Julian Chapter
The Julian Chapter gives readers a chance to hear from Wonder’s most controversial character. From the very first day Auggie and Julian met, it was clear they were never going to be friends. This story finally reveals the bully’s side of the story. Why is Julian so unkind to Auggie? And does he have a chance for redemption?

Pluto
Pluto offers a peek at Auggie’s life before Wonder. Christopher and Auggie were best friends from the time they were babies until Christopher’s family moved away; he was there for all of Auggie’s earliest memories, from surgeries to Star Wars marathons. Pluto is the story of two boys who have grown apart but are learning that good friendships are worth a little extra effort.

Shingaling
Shingaling shines new light on life as a fifth grader at Beecher Prep—as seen from the perspective of Charlotte, the girl chosen to be Auggie’s “welcome buddy.” Readers will learn more about Charlotte and her budding friendship with reader-favorite Summer, how the girls at Beecher Prep react to Auggie attending their school for the first time, and how Charlotte came to write the precept she used at the end of Wonder: “It’s not enough to be friendly. You have to be a friend.”

La lección de August (Movie Tie-In Edition): Wonder (Spanish-language Edition) (Spanish Edition)
Pronto en la gran pantalla

Más de 6 millones de personas se han enamorado de La lección de August, el libro que inspiró el movimiento ELIGE SER AMABLE. Ahora la historia de Auggie está en la gran pantalla protagonizada por JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, MANDY PATINKIN, DAVEED DIGGS y JACOB TREMBLAY como Auggie. 

Su cara lo hace distinto y él solo quiere ser uno más. Camina siempre mirando al suelo, la cabeza gacha y el ­flequillo tratando en vano de esconder su rostro, pero, aun así, es objeto de miradas furtivas, susurros ahogados y codazos de asombro. August sale poco. Su vida transcurre entre las acogedoras paredes de su casa, entre la compañía de su familia, su perra Daisy y las increíbles historias de La guerra de las galaxias. Este año todo va a cambiar, porque este año va a ir, por primera vez, a la escuela. Allí aprenderá la lección más importante de su vida, la que no se enseña en las aulas ni en los libros de texto: crecer en la adversidad, aceptarse tal como es, sonreír a los días grises y saber que, al final, siempre encontrará una mano amiga.
