Parents need to know that R.J. Palacio’s “We’re All Wonders” presents Auggie, the facially disfigured main character of her award-winning middle-grade novel “Wonder,” to the younger picture book audience. Here Auggie, who’s seen in Palacio’s stylized art as having just one eye, like on the cover of “Wonder,” tells readers how it feels to be treated badly because he looks different. He says that when kids point at him and stare and say unkind things behind his back that he can hear, it hurts his feelings. He encourages kids to acknowledge that we’re all different. His mom says he’s a “wonder,” and he wants people to see they’re wonders, too. “We’re all wonders,” he says. This sensitive yet direct book is great for teaching empathy and promoting kindness.
