My Thoughts on Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
One of my daughters is a fan of Kate DiCamillo’s work, and so I thought I would read Because of Winn Dixie and talk with her about why she loved it.
I enjoyed the plot. I enjoyed everything about the book, but to be honest, I enjoyed talking with my daughter about it the most. Turns out she loved the dog. Well, everyone loved the dog, so who can blame her.
I don’t know if any one aspect of the story, or the way DiCamillo told the story, really stuck with me on a writing level. But on a personal level, I was reminded that people are human, and that just because a neighbor strikes you as odd at first impression, doesn’t mean that your neighbor is a bad person. It is just means they are different from you, and can have a lot to teach you if you give them a chance.
