    One thought on “Because of Winn-Dixie”

    1. 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 s [...]

    2. 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 [...]

    3. 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 t [...]

    4. 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 [...]

    5. “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 “Wi [...]

    6. This is the first book my 8-year-old son was reading and said to me, "This book is really good, Mommy. I think you would like it. You should read it."So. I'm reading it. :)Someone called Kate DiCamillo's writing enchanting. I think enchanting fits perfectly.

    7. 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, more 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 more [...]

    8. 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.

    9. 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 cha [...]

    10. This book captured childhood so beautifully. Loved all the characters and the sweet message of friendship. I have read several of Kate DiCamillo's books and have loved every single one; but I'd have to say this one is my favorite!

    11. 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 Edw [...]

    12. The talented author of this book is, Kate Dicamillo and the genre of this great book is Adventure.Ople is the main character of this adventurious story. She is a lonley girl now, she wasnt before she had too move to this dreded town. Now she is veary alone and when she gose to the grocery store she will fine a veary hyper friend.when Ople arrives at the grocery store she is finding all the employies are freaking out and chasing after someone or something. Ople is getting veary curious and she lo [...]

    13. 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. [...]

    14. My 10 year old granddaughter Clara has decided to join a book club this year. They are going to meet once a month before school starts for the day, and she asked me if I wanted to join the club too and attend the meetings with her. Guess what my answer was? OF COURSE I WANT TO JOIN YOUR BOOK CLUB WITH YOU CLARA!!! I don’t even care that we will be meeting at 7:00 in the morning (OY!) Granddaughters + Books = Heaven!Because of Winn-Dixie is the selected book for this month. I could cry because [...]

    15. Cuma IDR 45k di Big Bad Wolf Indonesia.Aku mulai terlena dengan Kate DiCamillo, sejak Edward Tulane. Tidak terkecuali buku ini. Ceritanya sederhana. Tentang India Opal (nama gadis cilik) yang menemukan seekor anjing di swalayan."I just realized something, India Opal. When I told you your mama took everything with her, I forgot one thing, one very important thing that she left behind.""What?""You. Thank God your mama left me you."Selengkapnya: bibliough/2016/

    16. This is just a beautiful book. If you love dogs, if you love children, and if you have any appreciation for the power of love (and dogs) in healing hearts and relationships, then this is a book for you. The writing is great and the story is captivating. This is sort of like "Fried Green Tomatoes" meets "The Sandlot" meets "Snoopy." If you don't love it, I'll eat my hat.

    17. 4 sao.Một câu chuyện nhẹ nhàng, dễ chịu. Đọc tóm tắt truyện thì đã có thể hình dung ra nội dung của nó như thế nào rồi. Nhưng lúc mình đọc vẫn cảm thấy được sự mới lạ và thú vị trong đó.Mới lạ, thú vị không bởi các tình tiết mà ở hệ thống nhân vật của nó. Một cô bé có cái tên khá lạ: India Opal Buloni vừa chuyển đến nơi ở mới bởi c [...]

    18. Aw, that was just so DAAAAANG adorable. I just want to hold this book and talk with an American TWAAAAANG. (You totally need to read this with a Southern accent, got it? Which is hilarious, really, considering I'm an Aussie and my "southern accent" probably sounds like a frog getting murdered. But whatever.)I absolutely had to read this because I adore the movie.I'm really surprised how similiar they were. They movie basically followed the plot line-for-line. Awesome!So the whole time I had thes [...]

    19. India Opal Buloni (DiCamillo has a fondness for zany names), a preacher’s daughter newly arrived in town, has trouble dealing with the empty space left by her mother, who left the family seven years previously. One day she adopts a stray dog she finds making trouble in a Winn-Dixie. Having an overly attached, inquisitive dog puts India in new situations which lead her to meet some interesting townsfolk, like the good-natured old librarian with plenty of stories, a woman rumored to be a witch ( [...]

    20. I'm an old lady, and I just read another "book for kids" -- and not out loud to a kid. Don't scratch your head; it makes me think you have fleas. Anyway, election-related articles and the books I've been reading "drove" me to pull a young readers' book off of a to-read shelf. No, I haven't abandoned the "currently-reading" books shown on my profile page; in fact, I opened Because of Winn-Dixie because I want to keep them from winding up on the stopped-before-the-end shelf. Bring on the kids, and [...]

    21. ★★★★★ 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.

    22. 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!

    23. ”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 Sevill [...]

    24. 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.

    25. 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.

    26. 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 popu [...]
