Book Club for Kids
The Free Podcast where kids talk about books
This week: wonder, the podcast - by r.j. palacio
How do we treat those who are different? What does it take to be kind?
Kids from DC's Jefferson Academy discuss R.J. Palacio's novel "Wonder" with host Kitty Felde. The writer tells the story about a sidewalk incident that inspired the book. Our celebrity reader is Bob Garfield, cohost of WNYC's "On the Media."

What folks say about us:
"Thank you, again, for all that you do for our students. I know that the 5th graders were beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to talk about what they've read and express themselves to someone who is very interested in their opinions, but most importantly, in them."
- Flordeliza L. Cadiz Marks, Library Media Specialist, Maury Elementary School, Washington DC
