William Maurice Instructor: Dr. Love Children’s Lit Because of Winn-Dixie By: Kate DiCamillo Because of Winn-Dixey by: Kate DiCamillo is an extraordinary book for most age categories. It is exceptionally well written and it is appropriate for middle grade readers and up. It is a very fun and creative book. The story is about a girl and her dog and about the search for what really matters in life. It is also a story about stories which is real creative and makes for a very interesting book. The story takes place in a small Florida town; where India Opal Buloni pursues her journey toward friendship, love, understanding, and acceptance. Being new in town, Opal finds herself dwelling on her struggle to understand and accept why her mother left her, and needing desperately to find a friend. She first finds this friendship in a dog she deems as "less fortunate" and names him after the place where they meet, the Winn-Dixie grocery store. Because of this loveable dog’s charm and devotion, Opal soon meets a series of other lonely town characters, each on his or her own journey to learn what the loner Gloria Dump names "the most important thing."
