I am so excited to share that students in my great state of Massachusetts are reading "Wonder." This article, featured in the Marshfield Mariner, the town's local newspaper, shows a community coming together around kindness, love, and understanding.
The Furnace Brook Middle School read the book as part of their annual "One Book, One School" program. The book that is chosen to be part of the program is discussed in English, Math, and Science classes alike bringing the school community of over 1,000 students, teachers, and staff together on a single theme. And what better theme than Kindness.
Sean Costello, chairman of the school committee, is quoted in the news article saying, “Having the whole community be able to come together and read the same book with the same important values and virtues is an irreplaceable experience for them,” said “It’s something that brings our community closer together.”
The community plans on seeing the film when it hits theaters in November.
