      I think this is the year that I have discovered young adult and middle grade fiction as a genre full of quality books Always looking for wholesome books for my kids, I saw this book on a few friends feeds, and it happened to be at the library the last time I went Because of Winn Dixie is Kate DeCamillo s Newberry Award winning debut novel It features ten year old India Opal Buloni who has just moved from Watley to Naomi, Florida with her father the Preacher Lonely for the last seven years since [...]

      Because of Winn Dixie is such a beautiful and enchanting book I loved reading this with my daughter I am glad she was a little bit older when we read it I think she was about 8 as it may have been a little heavy for her if she had been much younger Although it I guess it depends on the child.Young Opal has just moved to Florida with her father a preacher and is lonely for her mother who left the family seven years before On a trip to the supermarket Winn Dixie she rescues a dog getting into trou [...]

      Opal Buloni goes to the Winn Dixie store, and comes home with a big scraggly dog she claimed on impulse Because of this dog, now named Winn Dixie, she meets her new neighbors in the Florida town she now lives in Nothing bad happens to the dog Let me repeat Nothing bad happens to the dog.This book is carefully balanced with dark and light It could so easily have been one of those syrupy, sweet stories with charmingly eccentric townspeople spouting folk wisdom, and the dog bringing everyone togeth [...]

      My friend Lauren read this to her elementary school kids last year one day she read it to them aloud for an hour and a half This is especially remarkable considering the usual behavior of her students which is NOT sitting still, listening, and engaging in meaningful ways.The story is well told in the ten year old main character s voice I m sure this makes it attractive and understandable to young readers or listeners And easy for them to relate to The book does a good job of opening up the topic [...]

      Because of Winn Dixie is an uplifting novella that made me laugh out loud while enjoying the read Winn Dixie is a supermarket chain located throughout southeastern US India Opal, a girl of ten or so, goes into one of the stores to buy a few things, and comes out with a mangy, smelly large dog He got inside the store somehow and created havoc, knocking over produce stands, and had all the store people chasing him So Opal adopted the dog, took him home, cleaned him up and named him Winn Dixie This [...]

      I have never had any interest in reading this book or seeing the movie Imagine my surprise when the library movie book group I belong to chose this at the one meeting I miss I am so happy they did I m no stranger to YA or children s literature so don t know what my reluctance was about I think I imagined sap, sap, sap and side of sap This was NOT sappy The story reminded me quite a bit of Billie Letts writing People in the world are weird, quirky, unique and wonderful The people we meet and th [...]

      This was a pretty good story about a young girl named Opal who adopts a dog named Winn Dixie who changes her life and the lives of others If you like these types of stories, be sure to check this out at your local library and wherever books are sold.

    10. Richard on said:

      This is a short novel but it contains a lot of reflection on grief, pain and friendship It reminded me in some ways of To Kill a Mockingbird In both cases, a father is left to take care of his child ren without the help of a mother And in both cases, a young girl, observant but not omniscient, grapples with problems and mysteries much bigger than she is, and gradually works her way toward a solution The dog, Winn Dixie, who is bigger than life and twice as goofy, is not so much the main characte [...]

      Kate DiCamillo has a way with words Yes, she does I must admit that I m in love with her writing style, and that I have read all of her works Some of her books are really funny, like the Marcy Watson series hey, even a serious reader has to laugh sometime , but the majority of her novel length works are way too serious to be written off as children s literature Yes, the are, undoubtedly, children s themes But not childish themes A few years ago I had reviewed her Miraculous Journey of Edward Tul [...]

      Before GR, I used to think children s books were just for children How off base was that This is a lovely story that will make you laugh and cry There are universal themes of love, friendship and family, and the love of a pet I really think author Kate DiCamillo is special, as I ve loved three of her books, all written for children It takes a special gift to be able to appeal equally to kids and adults, and she has it Don t pass this one by because it s a kid s book You d be missing out I listen [...]

      Didn t realize this was a Juvenile book when I got the audio from the library for a challenge on Southern Belles but I m glad I listened to tale of a motherless preacher s daughter who adopts a big mangy dog Loved this short story and Cherry Jones narration is wonderful She is so good, I may even listen to it again Update I did lisen to it twice it was that good.

    23. Laura on said:

      Heartwarming, southern read with beautiful themes about not judging people for their pasts, making friends with the unexpected and learning to deal with sadnesses in your life I liked how one reviewer compared this to, To Kill a Mockingbird, except it is written for middle graders Well worth the read

      Just about everything that happened to me that summer happened because of Winn Dixie I ll admit right here and now that I m not a dog person Never have been and never will be I think Chihuahua s are Satan s minions, I can t stand Boston terriers long story on that one , and I m extremely terrified of large dogs I m such a teeny tiny person and dogs are notorious for being excited to see someone that they tend to charge at you like a bull running down the streets of Seville And once they decide t [...]

      This is the third DiCamillo book I ve read this year and it is as beautifully written as the others I don t know what it is about her writing but I am immediately there She manages to create such richly drawn characters without being at all obvious she says so much with so few words Just wonderful.

    26. Kris on said:

      Cute and charming, but not a favorite Somewhat underdeveloped in terms of character depth or plot climax But I liked it better than The Tale of Despereaux.

    28. Brian Phillips on said:

      This is a GREAT book I think that it would be best used in a classroom that goes all the way up to high school It has a moral that is great for young kids to read and maybe even learn about themselves as well as others after reading it When kids see how hard it was for Opal moving and not having any friends and being so lonely that see befriends a stray dog I think that after reading this book it will help kids maybe look at other people in their lives and maybe see someone who is not as popular [...]
