Wonder, by R.J. Palacio, is a beautiful story that has been adapted to film. It releases to U.S. theaters, today, November 17, 2017 and I can’t wait to see it.

August “Auggie” Pullman, born with a condition that necessitated 27 surgeries that did not restore his disfigured face, enters school for the first time as a fifth grader. Can you imagine? It is a rough start but students around Auggie transform throughout the year, allowing viewers to soak up the possibilities of being “ordinary” and what it means to choose kindness.
