Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
This much loved kids' classic should not be ignored by adults. It is exceptionally well written and contains a profound message about love, friendship, diversity, acceptance and forgiveness. I would read this to a 5 year old & recommend it to all ages. The movie, which I have not seen, is likely very cute and entertaining, but it would be a shame to ignore the short novel because one already knows the story. Only 2 -3 hour read, tops.
