Children's Audiobook Review: Wonder (Ages 8-12)

R.J. Palacio

August, a fifth-grade boy who has a facial anomaly, has to navigate school for the first time. It's a difficult journey to make friends, deal with bullies, and learn just how much he is needed in the world. This was a wonderful audio! Diana Steele and Nick Podehl were top form. I adore Kate Rudd’s voice every time I hear it. Diana Steele voiced the main character, August, in a raspy voice that fit a fifth-grade boy with a facial anomaly. Those around him are the ones with the problems. This might be a wonderful audio for someone on our younger side, who is dealing with bullying.
