Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate Dicamillo
I love when animal stories have happy endings. This is one of those books. It was an easy read and didn't take me long to finish it once I started.
This is a story about a little girl named India Opal who lives with her father who is a minister. Her mother left when she was a baby so it is just her and her father. This is also a story about a dog who needs Opal (and she needs him). She names her new dog Winn-Dixie (since she found him in the supermarket of the same name) and they become inseparable. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal makes many new friends.
There is a movie based on the book and we watched it last Friday night for movie night. It was good but no where near as good as the book. They added a character, changed a personality, and left out several things. But it was a clean movie so great for a family movie night.
