Because of Winn-Dixie

Most Recently Read Book:

Because of Winn-Dixie

By Kate DiCamillo

Very sweet book about a girl who is sad that she doesn't know her mother and has to move to a new town until her newly-un-strayed dog helps her make new friends in her new town.  Lots of different stories woven in.  Great book to teach about getting to know a person before judging them.  I read Edward Tulane before I read this book and I really liked that book.  I figured I had to read Winn-Dixie.  I think I liked Edward Tulane better but both are great reads.  I could definitely see how Winn-Dixie would work as a classroom read-aloud.  (It's short, too!)
