Review this title!

A real tear-jerker for us sensitives!

Because of Winn-Dixie is really a delightful book. It was just perfect for me to read. I admired the display of what true friendship is. I most certainly learned life lessons like do not be judgemental and accept what you have. For a simple book it has great deeper meaning.

very touching story!!

I love Kate DiCamillo, she has written some VERY good books for kids. One of the reasons that I like her so much is because she is a local author for me, she lives in MN. YAY!! but anyway, this books is all about this young girl who finds a dog at the Winn-Dixie Grocery Store, she takes care of the dog and names her Winn-Dixie, after the place where she found this dog. The girl has had a hard time dealing with the fact that her mom is gone. But she does live with her dad in a trailer park and he is the Priest at the local church. Winn-Dixie is the first true friend that this girl has had and they have all sorts of wild adventures together!! This is truely a sweet and touching story for EVERYONE to enjoy!!
