Publisher's Description

This sweet movie for the whole family beautifully illustrates how the power of love can cure loneliness not just for a little girl, but also for an entire community.


Because of Winn-Dixie is the story of 10-year-old Opal and her single dad, an itinerant preacher. They move to a small Florida town, where we see their struggles with loneliness she missing her mother, he missing his wife, and both without a friend in the world. We meet other lonely characters, all needing a friend and a healthy dose of unconditional love and redemption.

Enter a large, scruffy, affable dog with a knack for getting himself into trouble and into the hearts of everyone he meets. The pooch, Winn-Dixie, a friend to the friendless, turns the whole community upside down in more ways than one. This discussion guide will explore the issues of loneliness, community, and the biblical concept of remembering and how those memories can keep our hopes alive.
