Summary: The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket -- and comes out with a dog. With the help of her new pal, whom she names Winn-Dixie, Opal makes a variety of new, interesting friends and spends the summer collecting stories about them and thinking about her absent mother. But because of Winn-Dixie, or perhaps because she has grown, Opal learns to let go, just a little, and that friendship -- and forgiveness -- can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.

I love Winn-Dixie. It's a tale about a stray dog in the Winn-Dixie store that ran around and made a mess. The store keeper wanted to put it in the pound but Opal said it was her dog. She brought him home and her dad wasn't too happy until he found out that she could take care of it really well.

The story was very great and funny! When have I seen a dog smile? Never! I really love the story because it is about a little girl about my age who moves to a place where she does not know any one.

I like this book because it has a neat dog in it. It also has a girl who learns to love her father. I would recommend this book to others.

I love this book because it is a great book. I love dogs and it has some dogs in it. The reason I like it is that it has a cute dog in it that is SO funny. If I was president I would make people read this book every week but if you are little then your mother can read it to you for a bed time story.
