Books are magic club

Wonder by R. J. Palacio

Wonder is, at it’s heart, a book about kindness. This book is such a great read-aloud. Using our ideas below, explore with your family, how the bravest and best thing you can do is choose to be kind.

Wonder follows the life of ten-year-old Auggie Pullman as he navigates his first year at school. As Auggie says, getting through fifth grade is not easy, even if you’re not him.

activity #02 - make a precept pennant

Our second activity for the Wonder Family Book Club is to make a Precept Pennant.

We love thinking about precepts, because it helps us think about what our values are and what we view as important.

So why not make a pennant with a precept that means a lot to you, which can be hung and viewed and thought about!
