BRiMS Talks about Wonder by Palacio
For the second meeting of BRiMS, the students sat down with their lunch and chips with salsa. We had selected the book, Wonder, by R J Palacio for everyone to read. Since some of the students had not read the book or had not finished the book, I found lots about the author and book to share with the group. Including the book trailer embedded below, an interview with the author by NPR about how she came to write the book and the website where students can sign the pledge to be kind, a movement that has taken off since the book was published.
