Choose Kind!

October is Bully Prevention Month.  Just one act of kindness can make an impact.  Join the national movement to Choose Kind, inspired by the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio.  This is the inspiring fictional story of the incredible ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive.  He goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan.  Here he endures the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student.

Random House, the publisher of the book has launched a campaign for readers across the globe to Choose Kind.  Here you can sign a pledge to be kind, find book resources, and learn more about the author, R.J. Palacio.
