Whatcha-Readin’ Wednesday: 365 Days of Wonder by R.J. Palacio

365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne's Book of Precepts

If you have read the book Wonder, you should remember Mr Browne, Auggie’s 5th grade teacher. Mr Browne shared precepts with his class. Simply put, precepts are “words to live by”. I think we all need a guide or pick me up every once in a while and that is why I love this companion volume. You could easily read it in one sitting or read it every day.

The precepts that author RJ Palacio chose to include in the book are a great mixture of classic thought, new & trendy stuff, and as well as precepts that readers sent to her!

Why I picked up the book: I loved Wonder so of course I had to get this.  (Click here to read my review of Wonder.)

Why I finished the book: The precepts are great, and would be wonderful to share in a class or work environment (as a good example of what the class could do!). Between each month, “Mr Browne”, Auggie’s 5th grade teacher, has a little essay that gives readers background into why he used precepts and updates on some of the characters. I found myself reading a lot of the precepts out loud to my husband. I will probably keep the book close and read on a regular basis.

I’d give it to: Fans of the original book will enjoy it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars (Really liked it!)
