Storyboard Text

  • Family is:
  • Appearances are:
  • Isolation is:
  • Auggie's family is loving, funny, protective, and supportive—and everyone who knows the Pullmans can see what a nurturing and caring family they are. (For contrast, check out what Miranda and Justin say about their families.)
  • Friendship is:
  • Don't judge a book—or a boy—by its cover. Though appearances are superficial, because they impact our lives so significantly, they end up also impacting our personalities.
  • Courage is:
  • Even though Auggie is socially isolated at school, he's wholly loved and supported at home—unlike Justin and Miranda, who both describe painful emotional isolation within their families. In Wonder, isolation doesn't always lurk where you expect it to.
  • Kindness is:
  • Auggie's friendships with Summer and Jack save him from total isolation and misery at school, but each friendship comes about differently and follows a different trajectory. Being Auggie's friend is easy because Auggie is a fun, nice kid, but it's also hard because there are social penalties for hanging out with the kid who is not like the others.
  • There are various shades of courage in Wonder: •The courage to attempt something terrifying. •The courage of taking a risk; going against the grain •The courage of persevering, even when doing so is excruciating.
  • Charlotte is nice. Summer is kind. Kindness is more than just being nice.It is harder to be kind than to be mean because kindness requires vulnerability. It only a little kindness to make such a big difference- choose kind!
