Family Storytelling, Book Cover, WonderA few books have been said to change people’s lives. There are always classics on the list, The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Giver, Pride and Prejudice, The Diary of a Young Girl are just a few. Harry Potter became a sensation to readers and writers alike, changing the audience of many books. A few of my other favorites on the list are The Help, The Book Thief, The Fault in our Stars, The Hiding Place and Unbroken. One book from 2013 has joined the list: Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

It’s a story of a young boy named August who is different. August was born with physical disabilities which lead to him being home schooled. August’s parents decide that after seven years of staying home it was time for him to go to school. They enroll him in the 7th grade and the book takes us on a journey of his first year at school.

There are so many books that have negativity; it’s nice to read something inspiring. Wonder is a book that teaches love, friendship, forgiveness, humility and wants to make you become a better person.

Wonder is an eye opening book for people of all ages, young and old. It teaches us all a lesson to not judge a book (person) by its cover, because some books may just surprise you and have a story full of love and takes you on a journey of true friendship and self-discovery. 

What about your favorite books? How have they changed you, and how can you include the things you learned into your life?  Write about some of the things you've learned from your favorite literature.  Make sure you share it with your family.
