Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
Thank goodness I have a daughter in the 5th grade who still allows her mother to read to her at bedtime. Without her I would not have been exposed to the magic of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Incidents, which we devoured before going to see the excellent movie. Now with another movie on the horizon, we are reading Because of Winn Dixie.
We had read Tale of Despereaux last year and loved it. I am loving the narrative voice of young Opal. And the movie stars both Cicely Tyson and Dave Matthews. I can't wait.
