Because of Winn-Dixie
Because of Winn-Dixie is written by Kate DiCamillo who also wrote the very popular Tale of Despereaux. This is a Realistic Fiction book and has 182 pages.
This book is an emotional story about a young girl named India adopting a dog called Winn-Dixie. Winn-Dixie is a loveable hound with an enjoyable personality and funny smile. When India and Winn-Dixie move to another city they meet new friends, and hear inspirational stories.
Because of Winn-Dixie is an easy read and is suitable for ages 7-13. This is a slightly sad but otherwise enjoyable book to read. I recommend this book and give it 4 stars out of 5.
