Hi! My name is Miley. My favorite part of Because of Winn-Dixie was when Opal went to the grocery store. That is when Opal found Winn-Dixie. This was my favorite part because Winn-Dixie was going crazy in the grocery store, and Opal saved Winn-Dixie from going to the pound! The character that I made a connection with was Opal, because I once had a dog too, and she ran away like Winn- Dixie. Luckily we found her. She was in the woods with her leg stuck in a tree branch. We took her to the vet, and she had to get a cast. She got better though. The character in this book that was my favorite was Opal because she is kind, and a dog lover like me!
Hi! My name is Jaysin. My favorite part of Because of Winn-Dixie was when Gloria Dump fed Winn-Dixie peanut butter. It was funny just thinking about a dog trying to eat peanut butter. My favorite character is Winn-Dixie because he likes to smile, and my dog likes to smile too. I made a connection with Opal when she was trying to find Winn-Dixie and she couldn't find him. I lost my dog, Bud, once, and he was inside the whole time when I found him.
We recommend this book to people who like animals because the main character is a dog named Winn-Dixie. It is a funny and really heart-warming book that people of all ages would enjoy reading.
