Songs from Wonder

The book is broken up into eight parts each told by a different character. The cover page for each part contains a few lines from a song. Below are the songs that appear on August’s, Via’s and Summer’s cover page. Have a look at these two videos at home and start thinking about why they are relevant. You have been given a copy of the lyrics in class.

August – Natalie Merchant’s Wonder Lyrics Video

Via – David Bowie’s Space Oddity Lyrics

Summer – Beautiful by Christina Aguilera (This is a Youtube video so you must have mum or dads permission to watch)
