Hello! My name is Jonathan Siebert and I have been talking to students in the United States of America and around the world about the book "Wonder" since January. I share with them my real life Auggie Pullman story. I have talked to students in 50 States as well as Pakistan and Australia. One night I had an amazing idea to spread awareness to “choose kind," stop bullying, and educate others to accept people’s facial differences. My video chats with classrooms have made me so happy. The feedback I’ve been getting is that I am changing people’s lives. It also was a good way for me to get through a tough time since my father passed away in March. I have also talked to classes in person, which have created memories I will never forget. One of my favorite experiences in the classroom was teaching Zumba after telling my story. I am a certified Zumba instructor. Wonder has changed my life and I pledge, and hope you do too, to #ChooseKind.
