World Book Day 2013


Our vote for this World Book Day - 'Wonder' by R J Palacio

Happy World Book Day! Here's the Capers vote for our best book this year - 'Wonder' by R J Palacio. Trully brilliant - it is about a 10 year old boy, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive and his transition from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a large school. He has to endure taunting, bullying and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student. Truly inspirational - with so many issues that we can all relate to and learn from, it's a great book to share and discuss. Not just for students, I just couldn't put it down, make sure you put it on your reading list!

So if you’re looking for a good book to share in school or as a family, give this one a go and let us know what you think.
