My son came home from school talking about the Wonder movie and book. He was so excited about it that soon we had a family movie night. The movie became an instant favorite. I am not sure how many times the kids watched it that first week. Soon after that My son bought himself the 3-book box set of wonder books. And my youngest brought this home from the library. She loved it so much she insisted on buying her own copy. I have no idea how many times we have read this book, first me reading to her and now her reading it to me.

My children all love this beautiful picture book. It captures such an important message. Our son has a medical condition. And his sisters are sensitive to people who are different. And my youngest who is 7 insisted I write this review. She wanted everyone to know that this is a wonderful book.  She thinks it is a book that should be read in every school and every family.

The illustrations are wonderful. The story is touching. Even if you have not seen the Wonder movie or read the novel, this picture book is sure to touch your heart. It has had a huge impact on us.
