Because of Winn-Dixie is a Realistic Fiction children's novel written by Kate DiCamillo and was the winner of a Newbery Honor distinction award. This is a book about a little girl who becomes best friends with a stray dog. This is a must read for every dog lover out there! This book would be good for an IR. #ucflae3414f19

KevinKantola The UDL strategy I would use is 2.2 discuss the authors writing style. The ESOL strategy I would use is simplify my speech for greater understanding of what is expected. 2d

The outstanding RF N, Because of Winn Dixie, written by Kate DiCamillo is a great LC book for your 3-8th grade students. This book is a Newbery Medal award winner. Follow the journey of Opal and her father as they move to Florida. Opal goes into the store “Winn Dixie“ and comes out with a dog! Opal and Winn Dixie become the best of friends. Follow both of them on an unforgettable, heart-breaking journey. #UCFLAE3414F19

Camrynm The EL strategy I would use would be 42: Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information. This can be a long novel for a 3rd grader so it is important to have them sequence the events in chronological order. The UDL principle I would use would be 3.3: Guide information processing and visualization. After students read the book, they can watch the incredible movie! 4d

I fell in love with this book. Told from the dogs perspective and from the outset I knew I was going to cry and I was not wrong. Beautifully written.

This book came out 18 years ago, and I have to say, it still holds up. I know many children‘s librarians were confused by my love of this wonderful pup, but I can't help it. Maybe he reminds me of my past and present stinky dogs, maybe he reminds me of a few family members, but I am not ashamed to say I love Walter the Farting Dog and all his adventures. About the only thing that dates this book is the reference to the VHS player.

Come-read-with-me @LibrarianRyan These books make me laugh! Walter is such an unexpected hero! Such a great series! 2w

Amazing book!! A must read! I read it in two days, cried and laughed the entire book. It was beautifully written in the point of view of a dog. This book is now my new favorite 💗

I will use this book in my future classroom to connect with my students that are going through the same problems and life changes. I personally loved this book when I was younger and it helped me realize that through hard times and doubt there is always a little light in every situation. This book can relate to any children even when the book talks about bullying and the children at her school/church.

I think this book portrays how some children's lives are while also illuminating the issues with growing up in the world today. The main character, Opal, just moves to a new town where it is hard for her to make friends. Opal also lives with only her father since her mother left them when she was younger. This can be a rough topic for some children, but this book can help children dealing with similar lifestyles and issues.
