If a book has ever captured my heart so much, it’s this one. I challenge anyone to read it without shedding a tear- I dare you! Try it! I bet you can’t…
It is such a heart warming story about a little boy called Auggie, who was born slightly different to the rest of his family, and it tells the story of his first year in middle school- the first time he’d ever been to school in his whole life.
Here are the opening pages…
How do you think Auggie really feels about his face?
How many surgeries has he had already? How must that have felt for him? For his family?
Why do you think not many people invited him to birthday parties?
Would you want Via as your sister? Why?
Why is he petrified about starting school next week?
