#WonderWednesday: Individual Donors Bring Wonder To Texas School Students

This story out of Texas is full of heart and ingenuity. The fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students of Breckenridge's South Elementary School received hundreds of copies of the book "Wonder" donated by individual donors. Donors included local businesses large and small, from Walmart to a local furniture store. 

On the first day of school, "Wonder" was revealed as the book the students would read. Each student picked up their copy and met their donor for a photo after the reveal. Each day the students begin the school day by reading "Wonder" as a community for thirty minutes. 

What a great idea! I hope this news story inspires other communities to come together on a similar project for their middle school students.

Happy #WonderWednesday everyone!
