Week 2: Now & Then
Answer the following questions twice. First, from your ten-year-old self's perspective and then from your current perspective.
1. I think everyone in the world should read...
When I was 10: The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynn Reid Banks. The author visited my school and I love how the main character can bring his toys to life.
Now: Wonder by RJ Palacio. As I read Wonder, I kept thinking of people I wanted to recommend it to...by the end, I wanted to give it to everyone I know. I have recommended it to so many people, from neighbors and friends to colleagues, I even recommended it to my doctor. It is such an important book about how we treat each other. The world would be a kinder place if everyone read Wonder.
