Mrs Reynoldson made this book trailer about one of her favourite books for young readers, Wonder by R. J. Palacio. If you're inspired by the trailer, why not try the other books in the series?

The Julian Chapter (from the perspective of the bully), Pluto (Auggie's life before Wonder) and Shingaling (life in 5th Grade with Auggie from the perspective of Charlotte, his buddy).
