What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Daily Wonder is mostly a promotional app for the movie Wonder and the books Wonder and 365 Days of Wonder. The app includes daily inspirational quotes, weekly kindness tips, and promotional movie materials, like the movie trailer. Users can find educational resources related to the Choose Kind campaign and pledge, as well as things to buy. Kids can view a calendar that shows how many days of quotes they've read, and they can return to favorite quotes and share them with friends via social media. Note that the book and movie have slightly more mature content than the app. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

To use DAILY WONDER, first enter your date of birth, and then view the visual tutorial. Read the Daily Wonder inspirational quotes and weekly kindness tips. View the calendar to see how many quotes you've read, and tap on a specific day to read it again. Read brief bios of the people to whom the quotes are attributed. Tap Movie for movie promos, posters, tickets, and more. Tap More Wonder for products, including books and classroom supplies (to purchase, tap on the product and purchase it at the Random House site). Tap About Choose Kind to read about resources for teachers and communities. 

 

Is it any good?

This app is clearly a promotional tool for the book and movie, but there's some good kindness-promoting content here, too. The inspirational daily quotes, the weekly kindness tips, and the Choose Kind resources may be valuable social and emotional learning tools, especially for kids who have already read the book or seen the movie. The quotes and bios of the people who said them could become terrific conversation starters. That said, with all of the movie trailers and stuff for sale, there's no doubt that Daily Wonder is above all an advertisement for the movie and related products.
