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 think Because of Winn Dixie is a great book because it makes you appreciate what you have, and you will respect your mom while you have her.

I liked this book alot. Opal, the main character in the book, adopts a stray dog that she finds in The Winn-Dixxie Market. Opal meets some new friends along the way, one is the old lady in her neighborhood that everyone thinks is mean but when Opal met her she was not mean she was just mistreated. There is a important message in this book.

Review:

I liked this book a lot. It is about a dog, and I love dogs. I thought it was funny how the little girl named the dog after a grocery store. My third grade teacher read it to me and I read it myself. It's the kind of book you just don't want to stop reading. I hope you get a chance to read the book Because of Winn Dixie.

I really liked this book because it shows how much a young girl can love her dog. The book is interesting all the way through because Opal keeps meeting new friends along the way. Opal proved that an old woman in the neighborhood who a lot of people thought was mean, and crabby wasn't really mean after all. It shows how a nice person can be mistreated just because people don't get to know them. I think it has a good message in it!
