The unforgettable bestseller Wonder, now a major motion picture, 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, featuring Auggie and Daisy on an original adventure, written and illustrated by R. J. Palacio.
Over 6 million people have fallen in love with Wonder and have joined the movement to Choose Kind. Now younger readers can meet Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face, and his beloved dog, Daisy.
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.

“A beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.” —The Wall Street Journal
“A crackling page-turner filled with characters you can’t help but root for.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Rich and memorable.” —The New York Times Book Review
This book is a picture book based off of the chapter book, “Wonder.” I love the message of this book, that when we look with kindness, we will notice we are all wonders. I think this is a fantastic book to use to talk about people that are different than us, whether that be because of a disability, race, color, religion, or personality, and how everyone is unique and special. This book also talks about bullying, and how it can be hurtful.
Wonder, the best-selling young adult book, beautifully teaches important lessons about love, friendship, and acceptance of people who look different. From the same author, We’re All Wonders keeps the character of Auggie and makes those same lessons accessible for kids who aren’t ready for Wonder. The illustrations are darling and the story is simple, but the message is powerful. In our family, this book has been a great way to facilitate discussions about why some people look different on the outside, how they feel on the inside, and how we should see them—and how we should see ourselves!
