Today I took the kids to see the movie "Wonder." I read the book this week and my daughter read it at school this school year.
The book was a quick and fast read because it was so good! I was drawn in from the start. I liked how short the chapters were and that the book was sectioned out by characters which provided a viewpoint of that character.
The author developed the characters very well and anyone who reads can't help but think about being kind more! I think my favorite character was the cool teacher who really challenged the students with mottos and positive sayings. I know since I am a teacher it was easier to relate to him.
On to the movie... bring tissues! It was a great movie that leaves you with a lasting message of be kind to one another. A message we all need to hear more of.
I was disappointed they left out the whole hearing aide part of the story as well as getting a new puppy at the end. So minor differences

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
