    Wonder really stirred up my emotions, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! I like the way the author spoke to us from so many of the characters’ view points.

    My favorite precept from Mr. Browne’s class:
    MAY
    “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.” —John Wesley’s Rule

    My own precept:
    “Make a habit of finding something good in everyone you meet. Some people display it clearly while others make you search for it.”

    Wonder was a very enjoyable book to read. We all need to be understanding to people who are different from ourselves.

    My favorite Precept from Mr Brown’s class;

    SEPTEMBER
    “When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” —Dr. Wayne Dyer

    My own precept;

    “Try your best in everything that you do”

    I thought Wonder was a great book. I especially loved all of the different perspectives throughout the book. It makes the book about more than a child’s (Auggie’s) experience, and it illustrates the impact we all have on each other and in each others’ lives.

    My favorite precept from the list:
    “Your deeds are your monuments”
