Wonder books

Have you had Wonder in your life? Have you met Auggie yet? R.J. Palacio’s book, Wonder has the potential to change your life. Read it and find out why!

The book is now a movie in the theaters starting November 17, but you might want to check out the book beforehand, or even try one of the condensed versions we have available in the kids area of the library.
