Wonder - Part Four: Jack

At the end of Part One, we read about what happened on Halloween at school. Most of you had some very strong opinions about Jack. Think about how you felt when the Bleeding Scream walked into class and heard the conversation between Darth Sidious and the two mummies. Got that feeling? Remember it?

Now consider the quote that begins Part Four, Jack's part:
"Now here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with one's heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye."
Seeing with the heart? What is essential, or most important, is invisible to the eye? Does that match what we read at the end of Part One?

That quote is from The Little Prince, a short novel originally published in France in 1943, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. A preview is available in Google Books where you can read the first few chapters.

  4. ALL of 6th grade students were required to Wonder during the summer, so that they can get a special invitation to go to see the movie. They loved the book and loved the movie even more.

    1. It's all about choices. There are 24 hours in a day. It's all about how you choose to fill those 24 hours. I choose reading a lot!
