For use in schools and libraries only. In the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Wonder, readers were introduced to memorable English teacher Mr. Browne and his love of precepts. Simply put, precepts are principles to live by, and Mr. Browne has compiled 365 of them--one for each day of the year--drawn from popular songs to children's books to inscriptions on Egyptian tombstones to fortune cookies. His selections celebrate kindness, hopefulness, the goodness of human beings, the strength of people's hearts, and the power of people's wills. Interspersed with the precepts are letters and emails from characters who appeared in Wonder. Readers hear from Summer, Jack, Charlotte, Julian, and Amos. There's something for everyone here, with words of wisdom from such noteworthy people as Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., Confucius, Goethe, Sappho--and over 100 readers of Wonder who sent R. J. Palacio their own precepts.

I didn't really like the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio but I did like the many precepts included in each chapter of the book. This is a collection of precepts (365 to be exact) based off of the original story.

Mr. Browne has collected a different precept for every day of the year, some by famous people, some by his students, but the recurring theme is kindness. When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind. Dr. Wayne Dyer. Author R. J. Palacio has also included an essay for each month, explaining through Mr. Browne some idea or belief or experience that he believes to be important. While this book is fiction, and a companion book of sorts to the novel Wonder, there is much truth to be discovered in its pages.

I actually took almost a whole year to read this book. It certainly has lots of precepts to ponder and words to live by.

I love quotes and many of these are quality. I understand that this is geared towards children, but so much repetition of concept that many of the quotes are just rephrasing a central idea that would have been better represented by a few choice musings instead of a tirade of ineloquence. I did, however, mostly enjoy his interludes. Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage: it can be delightful. (George Bernard Shaw)
