BJC Bookclub – Because of Winn-Dixie

Grab your favorite teacup and teapot for reading. I recently read “Because of Winn-Dixie” and it’s now a favorite of mine. Winn Dixie is a children’s novel and it’s young adult fiction. The story is about a young girl who finds a dog and how they bond together as she shares her thoughts with the dog. There are times it really makes you laugh. If you love dogs you will love this book. The back of the book gives a great summary, it reads:

Making Friends in a new town is never easy, but when Opal adopts a stray dog she names after the grocery store where she found him, she learns that friendship – and forgiveness – can sneak up on you

It is great for children but I have to say my husband and I, along with some of our friends, really enjoyed reading it. We enjoyed it because of how it teaches about love and friendships and keeps your interest throughout the entire book. I like to keep extra copies on hand to give as a gift to children and even for some of those adult friends of ours. It truly is a heartwarming story.

There is also a movie for the book! You can watch it on Disney+ if you have their subscription or you can buy or rent it through services like Youtube, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, and more.
