Wonder Movie Comes to Blu-ray & Contest!

Wonder Comes to Blu-Ray February 13th, 2018!
Fitting in at school is hard enough with cliques and bullies. Now imagine trying to fit in with a facial difference. This is the premise of the movie Wonder, based on the New York Times best-selling novel by R.J. Palacio. Starring Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay and Owen Wilson, the movie has received excellent reviews.  Wonder comes to blu-ray on February 13th, and is perfect for family movie night!

Movie synopsis:
"Wonder is the inspirational and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a (fictitious) boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time." 

This is a movie that my 11-year old daughter is dying to see on blu-ray.  She owns the Wonder book, and has reread it about five times over the last year.  All of her friends have also loved the book, and say that the movie version of Wonder is really good.

  5. Oh I remember the girls to this day that called me some awful names. But I let it go and try to lead by example for my kids, teaching them to always be kind to others.

  6. I do remember being bullied a few times at school but thankfully I had an older sister and brother who stepped in quickly to help me and it all seemed to go away. But that was way back in the 60s and times were so much gentler then.

  7. I remember school not feeling like an inclusive place. Being excluded is sad to experience and witness. I hope my efforts made a difference for some kids.

  8. Unfortunately yes. There are several instances I recall, usually emanating from several disproportionately influential boys, none of whom ever achieved greatness.

  15. When I was little I was bullied a lot. I moved away from my home town where I had tons of friends and started at a new school where everyone made fun of me and called me fat. I was horribly depressed and am glad I’m no longer in that situation. I feel for any child who is bullied and I hope we can live in a world where it won’t happen in the future.

  18. I was and at times am bullied. My child has also dealt with bullying and it is not ok. I know we all have issues to deal with however taking them out on someone else is not acceptable.

  19. I grew up in a small town and went to a small public school where everyone knew everyone, plus we all had either a sister or brother going to the same school and I never experienced any bullying to myself or others. When I got to high school though I did see others getting bullied.

  20. I was teased in school, but never really bullied. I saw other kids get bullied though. :-(

  21. I was teased a bit in school because of my last name. Unfortunately it hasn't changed much over the years and my daughter that has an anxiety disorder is left out, teased and in some cases kids are downright mean. We took our girls to see Wonder and it really is a great movie and I hope that all the children that see it, learn something from it and how to CHOOSE KIND.

  27. I was bullied back in middle school. It was a tough experience, but a much needed one. I was a sheltered child therefore making me an easy target for bullying. That’s not excuse for the bullies to act that way, but certainly I could’ve done something different as well. Back then, in the moment, all I wanted to do was to cry and escape the situation whenever possible. I let them control my emotions. Now as an 18 year old, as I reflect on myself... I realize that particular experience taught me to be more confident, more comfortable with myself. To face the problem head on is my current motto. And to never let those people who don’t value you be the ones to control your emotions — your happiness. I hope for anyone who’s suffering from bullying to find love in themselves, and to find help from trusted people when necessary. Peace.
