The more I read of Summer the more I love her. She is so caring and everything I would like to see in a friend for my son. While my son doesn’t have visual impediments from his birth, he does have issues related to speech from the trauma he suffered. He is starting Kindergarten in a few short weeks and I’m terrified. He was already picked on in Pre-k due to his inability to pronounce some words. I just hope he is able to get a good friend like Summer is to Augie. I am reading him the book as well. My son, Loki, really loved these chapters. I hope we see more of Augie in the future!
The question for this week was
Why do you think Summer chose to be kind when the other kids didn’t? How would you describe Summer and Auggie’s friendship?
My Son, Loki, said it’s because everyone needs a true friend and that they have a true friendship so far. I believe that some kids were just raised to have more empathy. Being in the ‘cool’ crowd isn’t always right, Summer saw this. In a way, I agree with my son because a true friendship doesn’t rely on social standings or looks.
I hope you all love the chapters this week! I know we have! Be sure to Check out the Facebook post!
