Hi, my name is Aniyah. My favorite part of Winn Dixie was when Opal was at the grocery store and went home with a dog. This was my favorite part because it was funny. Opal's dad was confused why she brought home a dog instead of groceries. The character that was in this book that was my favorite was Winn-Dixie because he sounds like a good and fun dog. The Character that I made a connection with in Because of Winn-Dixie was The Preacher. The reason that I made a connection to him was because we have a friend in our family who is a preacher, and she has taken me to church every Wednesday and Sunday since I was about six months old.
Hi, my name Tristan. My favorite part of Because of Winn-Dixie is when Winn-Dixie sneezes. He smiles so hard he sneezes, when Otis is playing his guitar he gets so sleepy he sneezes, when he sits in front of the fan he sneezes. I think it is funny; all the things that make him sneeze. My favorite character, as well as the character I made the biggest connection with, are both Winn-Dixie because he is so funny!! He does so many funny things. Like when he was running around the Winn-Dixie store knocking everything over, but he was having a great time! When he smiles so big he shows his teeth. Or when he eats peanut butter, or sits in front of the fan hogging it; that was all funny. I have two baby sisters, and I am good at making them laugh. I make funny faces at them, or I tickle them in the belly. My favorite character is Winn-Dixie because he is so funny, and I connect with Winn-Dixie because both Winn-Dixie and I are funny.
I (Aniyah) recommend this book to my niece because she loves dogs. When she sees a dog, she will run up to the dog and pet it or hug it.
I (Tristan) recommend this book to my Dad because he likes dogs.
