Wonder - R.J. Palacio

Wonder is another wonderful book that introduces diversity. I won't give any spoilers away, but it's about a boy who doesn't look like everyone else. After being homeschooled, he finally enters the 5th grade. Full of emotion and heartbreak, it will tug on the heart strings of readers. This would be a great book to use in a 5th grade classroom. After reading the book, students could do a character analysis.
