    "Wonder is a children's book. The characters are kids with disabilities and the challenges they face. They teach you a lot and help you understand what it is like to have disabilities."

    "This seems like a great solution for the topic. This book is a kid's book, and it seems like it teaches life lessons for kids as well. So, I think this book could help kids to grow and become more mature in a good and positive way. This book also has awesome review scores on Amazon, (4.9 stars out of 5). It has over 12,000 reviews, so this means that this book is almost universally liked. "

    "I have to admit, I saw the movie first. I read the book next, and it was just as amazing. I truly believe that this should be required reading for every middle school. Auggie is such a strong character in this story and one that every child can look up to as a role model. The parents in the story (while not perfect), are also ones that other adults can surely look up to. "

    "Someone told me this book is for pre-teens and teens! I disagree. Yes, it should be a must-read for those ages, but it should also be read by everyone! There are so many topics explored by this first time author, so many lessons to be pondered, for those of us at every age. There are so many things we forget that are important and R.J.Palacio gently reminds us as we learn from Angie, his hard-won friends, and his spectacular family."

    "This is an amazing true story about a little boy born with facial differences. He tells the story of how he transitions to public school after being homeschooled. This story is a very touching and amazing story that I believe all children and adults should read."

    "Good book with a good message! This book should be required reading in all elementary school. It's insightful for those outside of the "norms" that need to be encouraged with a positive message. If your child has ever been bullied this book will especially mean something. Even if your child is the bully, it may help teach them perspective."

    "Looks like a good book for the younger crowd. Nice brief description of the book, and another short bio of the author. The book has great reviews, and is being made into a movie."

    "Incredibly moving book. It should be a self-help book because it hits human nature right on the head."

    "This isn't a book about autism. This is a book about a child with a facial disfigurement. It is a great book, but if you're looking for a book about autism you will be disappointed."

    "To say that Palacio has a gift for inserting himself into the mind of an adolescent would be to sell this author short. The voice is supremely authentic. I believed every word and was drawn in and cared about plucky August right away. He is brave, compassionate and dealing with every child's worse nightmare, sticking out like a sore ugly thumb, through no fault of his own and being judged for things over which he has no control. Read this one to or with your struggling and sensitive pre-teen. You will be glad you did."

    "This book is a great look into the life of a kid living with a faciocranial deformity. It does a great job of putting the reader into the story and the daily routines needed for the special kid and how it affects him and his family. I'd recommend this book to readers of all ages."

    "First - Parents need to know that Wonder is about young boy, August Pullman, who has a congenital facial abnormality who has to cope with a range of reactions to his unusual appearance. Some kids use hateful language, and some people suggest that Auggie is mentally deficient. However, goodness wins out, and readers should find it inspiring and uplifting. Author R.J. Palacio writes the book in multiple voices -- Auggie's, some of his friends', his sister's -- and the different points of view are mostly very well-realized and show the inner feelings of the different characters. Wonder by RJ Palacio was astonishing! I think the book was for grades fifth-eighth grade, and adults would like it. This book can teach many different lessons. The one that stood out to me was not to judge by the way someone looked but by the inner character of that person. It is one of the most moving books I have read in a long time, and I am still pretty amazed at how the author wove so much complexity into a story for middle schoolers.Take home messages included, you can count on your parents even if things get tough, sometimes people make mistakes and deserve second chances, sometimes you just have to suck it up and endure and most importantly, in general, things change over time.

    "If I could give a "6" for a great book for 10 to 12 year olds, then I would as "Wonder" is a fantastic book for this age group. Both of my kids read the book and they BOTH stated that the "book is better than the movie". How many times have you ever heard a kid from the digital age state that the book is better than the movie? There's just something about R. J. Palacio's writing style where she infuses her characters with humanity and warmth and real human emotions. I even read the book and started crying at several emotional scenes in the book. I have also bought this book more times than I can recall as a gift for nephews and nieces. It is THAT good!"
