What a delightful story that includes aspects of family, community, friendship, and loss. And when you add Winn-Dixie, a precious dog, he just enhances all of the above. I found myself laughing out loud and then sobbing with tears as I listened to the audiobook. It was a touching story and as an adult I still enjoyed it. It’s definitely not just a book for children.
And, as is ALWAYS the case, the book is even better than the movie! Once you closed the last page (or listen to the last word), you will be left with a warm fuzzy feeling.
