Book Review of Because of Winn-Dixie

Because of Winn-Dixie
Because of Winn-Dixie
Author: Kate DiCamillo
Genre: Children's Books
Book Type: Paperback

Chapter book, fiction, much better than the movie. The book came before the movie and goes into more depth with the characters and their relationships. Due to the nature of divorce, lonliness, alcoholism, mental retardation, outcasts in society, etc. I recommend this for children in 4th grade or perhaps even for older children. There are too many wonderful books for children who are in 4th grade or younger to pass those by to move on to this book; read the other more innocent content books first. I read this as an adult in about 3 hours in one sitting and really enjoyed it and it was a tear-jerker in the end. This is a Newbery Honor medal book. Highly recommended.
