Because of Winn-Dixie Literature Unit

By Kate DiCamillo

India Opal Buloni and her father have just moved to Naomi, Florida. Opal (that is what everyone calls her) was a bit lonely in her new town. Her father was a dedicated preacher who spent almost all of his time, well, preaching. He did not give much attention to Opal. Opal’s mother left the family when she was very young. So, Opal was desperate for someone to share her life with, and then she met Winn-Dixie. She had gone to the store for a few things when suddenly her life changed. A stray dog came running into the grocery store. The manager went wild and Opal could tell that the dog was about to be in serious trouble. So, she told the manger it was her dog, apologized, and begged for forgiveness. From that day on, she called the dog Winn-Dixie (after the grocery store) and they became inseparable. Though Opal was generally a shy girl, Winn-Dixie helped her make a lot of friends. As she made friends and learned more about others, she actually came to know more about herself. She also gained the confidence she needed to be happy in life. This is a wonderful story that students are sure to love.
