Wonder Literary Study
"I must be one of the wonders of God's own creation."
-Natalie Merchant

Quite possibly one of the most heart-warming and endearing works of adolescent fiction I've read in quite some time. Wonder, by R.J. Palacio is truly a literary work of art.

This creative, comprehensive, and affordable literary unit, brought to you by Wake Up Sunshine (with interactive activities from Beach House) truly brings the wonder of August and the challenges he faces to life for any adolescent child.

Watch as your child or students flourish, while reading this fictional work and working with the literary guide's activities. They will think on higher and deeper levels through analyzing and synthesizing Wonder's elements of fiction, journal responses, quizzes, vocabulary, World Language practice, and much more!

Make sure to check out p. 126, as well. Here, the students or your child can watch the embedded video of the song Wonder, by Natalie Merchant (the inspiration of the book) and take part in the discussion questions included, as a creative and thought-provoking activity!
