Understanding the point of view and feelings of each character is very important when reading Wonder. The author uses different characters' points of view to show readers how Auggie affects people in different ways. For each of the characters (for whom a chapter is named and from whose point of view in which it is written), list his or her relationship to Auggie, his or her traits, whether or not YOU believe he or she is kind (and why), and a quote by the character that backs that up.
“AUGUST PULLMAN'S PRECEPT: Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world." - Auggie
