Wonder Audiobook Free by R J Palacio
Wonder is a children’s audiobook by Raquel Jaramillo, under the pen name of R. J. Palacio. This book is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.
R. J. Palacio wrote Wonder Audiobook after an incident where her son noticed a girl with a severe facial deformity and started to cry. Fearing he would react badly, Palacio attempted to remove her son from the situation so as not to upset the girl and her family but ended up worsening the situation. Natalie Merchant’s song “Wonder” made her realize that the incident could illustrate a valuable lesson. Palacio was inspired by Merchant’s lyrics and she began writing. She named the book directly after the song, and used the song’s chorus as the prologue of the first chapter.
‘My name is August. I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.’
Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things – eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary – inside. But ordinary kids don’t make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren’t stared at wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life.
Now, for the first time, he’s being sent to a real school – and he’s dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted – but can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all?
Wonder Audiobook Review
Wonder Audiobook Mp3 is one of those rare books that makes you want to hug everyone in it so tightly that they’ll have no doubt about how much you love them…and beyond that, it also makes you want to reach out and hug the whole world. It’s an upbeat, humorous, life-affirming story that deserves to be read – and it’s one that may just change its readers, too.
Many schools are now reading this amazing story in schools. A story that needs to be told, of being different and how that affects your whole world. It displays compassion, remorse, forgiveness.
The audiobook rings with authenticity. The short chapters and shifting narrative make this a quick, easy read. It’s a feel-good book with a great message, and the ending is a tearjerker in the best possible way. I’d recommend it without hesitation to most middle-grade readers, girls or boys, even those who may not normally pick up realistic fiction
