We’re All Wonders
Ages 4 and up
The unforgettable bestseller Wonder 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.
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.

We have now read this book a half dozen times AND I have heard Ella reading it to our dog in her room. She loves the bold and energetic artwork and the text is easy enough for her to read it to me which she really liked. After our first reading, she said, “Everyone should know that we are all good people, even if they don't look the same." And I am stealing the line "Look with kindness and you will always find wonder." It’s going in my rotation of motivational morning chats with Ella. -Taylor, mother to Ella (age 7), Fort Worth, TX
