Rated 4 out of 5 by from A touching tale "Because of Winn-Dixie" is very touching and portrays the pain of having a parent leave you. It's a very touching story that I've read at least five times. People who are fond of animals will be even fonder of this book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute and quick to read 3.5 stars Opal is 10-years old and finds a dog wreaking havoc in a grocery store in the small town she has just moved to. The dog doesn't look like he's in very good shape, so she feels badly for him and takes him home to see if her dad, a preacher, will let her keep him. The dog, Winn-Dixie, helps Opal make some new friends in town. This was cute. It wasn't as much about the dog as I'd hoped, and the parts with the dog were my favourite parts, but it was more about Opal making friends in her new town. It was an enjoyable kid's book, and super-fast to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from delicious read for kids I loved loved this book! What a charming story. It has a Southern flavour not unlike To Kill a Mockingbird the heroine is endearing and Winn-Dixie himself will capture any heart. This Newberry winner is probably most appropriate for children in the Judy Blume and Beverley Cleary age group .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for all ages! This book is amazing! As a reading tutor, I found myself reading ahead, so that I could find out what would happen next! I read the book, chapter by chapter (very short, exciting chapters) to grade 2 students. They enjoyed hearing about Opal and Winn-Dixie, and the comprehension was great. It's written in a simple, charming way. I love it! I recommend it to anyone who wants a good laugh, and a heart-warming tale. I can't wait to read her next books!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely story- great for reluctant readers too I also used this with my 4/5 class and everyone who read it really enjoyed it- boys, girls and even my reluctant readers. Heartwarming and simply told, the story unfolds in chapters that each tell a part of the story on their own. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner of a Book I read this book to a Grade 5 class and they just loved it. This story has great character development and deals with a whole range of emotions, loneliness, sadness, and happiness. There are funny moments mixed with parts that almost make you cry. Every chapter reads like a short story. A good book about making friends.
