This book by R. J. Palacio is the perfect book to read in order to recognize the importance of having empathy for others. It tells the story of Auggie Pullman, a sweet boy born with a facial deformity so severe that it’s impossible not to take notice instantly upon seeing him. As Auggie transitions to mainstream school life in fifth grade he is treated differently because of his appearance, but ultimately he comes to be accepted and loved by his peers. It’s the perfect read for people of any age to gain a little humility and perspective on life.
