Wonder Book Cover

Learning Ally's volunteer voiceover community was nominated for Best Voice Over Audiobook Narration for Children’s Pre-School books for their work on recording WONDER.  New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. Read it before you see it and let us know in the comments if the book is better than the movie.

If you've already read Wonder, check out one of the Wonder ancillary novels:

365 Days of Wonder

365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne's Book of Precepts by R.J. Palacio.

365 DAYS OF WONDER is a beautiful companion to the novel: a collection of quotes and wise words, one for every day of the year. It includes funny, insightful, inspiring thoughts from WONDER's fans, famous authors and personalities - from Roald Dahl and Paul McCartney to Anne Frank, Tolkien and Popeye - and from the novel itself. This companion book features conversations between Mr. Browne and Auggie, Julian, Summer, Jack Will, and others, giving readers a special peek at their lives after Wonder ends.
