R.J. Palacio’s 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne’s Book of Precepts, a companion book to #1 New York Times bestselling novel Wonder, hits bookshelves tomorrow!
Mr. Browne, a memorable teacher from Wonder, has compiled 365 precepts, or principles to live by. Gathered from all sorts of sources — from children’s books and fortune cookies to popular songs and Egyptian tombstone inscriptions — his collection of precepts celebrate hopefulness, kindness, the strength of people’s hearts, the power of people’s wills and the goodness of human beings. Also filled with letters and email excerpts from characters in Wonder, 365 Days of Wonder provides readers with a deeper look into the lives of Summer, Jack, Charlotte, Julian and Amos.
To celebrate Palacio’s new release, BookPal is creating its very own album of precepts! Now through Friday (8/29), post your favorite precept to our Wonder Facebook post and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win our Wonder Bundle Prize (365 Days of Wonder and Wonder)! At the end of the contest, we will compile all of the entries into a Facebook album of BookPal Precepts.
Recommended in conjunction with Wonder, 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne’s Book of Precepts is the ideal book for kids 8 to 12 years of age, and those reading at a 3rd to 7th grade level. However, this book is also a perfect keepsake for readers of all ages because of its inspirational message and focus on kindness. Education program administrators, teachers, librarians and community reading program directors can purchase 365 Days of Wonder in bulk with BookPal, the leading bulk book and eBook distributor, at a discounted price. BookPal also offers special pricing for many other classroom book sets, wholesale textbooks and bargain books.
