I read "Wonderstruck" to my eight-year old son, and we both loved it. One character's story is told in Selznick's iconic pencil drawings, and, at a time fifty years later, another character's story is told simultaneously in words. At a certain point in the book, the two character's stories come together.
One of our favorite things about this book was the explanation of museum boxes, curio cabinets, and how museums really came to be. The book follows the creation of several museum exhibits, and blends the stories of two children who are deaf and missing integral parts of their families.
The book also led us to create our first treasure box:
It's a lovely story, and recommended for both children and adults.
