Because of Winn-Dixie is about a girl named Opal whose father, a preacher, sent her to the Winn-Dixie store to buy groceries. But when Opal came home, instead of groceries, she brought home a dog. Opal got to keep the dog, and since she got the dog while she was at Winn-Dixie, she named him Winn-Dixie. Opal and Winn-Dixie go around town telling about the different parts of the town and important and interesting people.
I recommend this book to dog lovers and people who like learning new things.
