Opal goes shopping. Gets a dog.

Because of Winn Dixie

What we're reading

A girl named Opal goes shopping at the supermarket. But instead of food, she winds up getting a dog, which is a good thing because she needs a friend. She’s new in town and her mom is gone. Her daddy the Preacher doesn’t like to talk about it.
Winn Dixie (the dog, not the store) helps her make more new friends. She meets Miss Franny Block the librarian, Otis in the pet shop, and Gloria Dump who is nearly blind but sees exactly what’s going on.
