Product Description
What's included:
- Chapter Summaries for the wildly popular book, Because of Winn-Dixie.
- A summary exercise and sample.

Note:
I have the kids take note as we read, share one of their notes, and then I put this up for the kids to see. I give them about five minutes to add anything to their notes that they did not get for themselves or from each other.

Book Summary:
Because of Winn-Dixie, the preacher tells Opal ten things about her absent mother, one for each year Opal has been alive. Winn-Dixie is better at making friends than anyone Opal has ever known, and together they meet the local librarian, Miss Franny Block, who once fought off a bear with a copy of War and Peace. They also meet Gloria Dump, who is nearly blind but sees with her heart, and Otis, an ex-con who sets the animals in his pet shop loose after hours, then lulls them to sleep with his guitar.

Opal spends all that sweet summer collecting stories about her new friends and thinking about her mother. But because of Winn-Dixie or, perhaps, because she has grown, Opal learns to let go, just a little, and that friendship and forgiveness can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.
