This is a children's book but should be required reading for all adults. Maybe before you get you tax return, you have to submit a book report on Wonder and a list of all the kinds acts you have accomplished in the past year.

And still Auggie was able to face the world -- not always an easy thing for him, but he carries it out with intelligence and humor.
