Bye Bye Plastic Bags

We read the “Book of the Month, One Plastic Bag, by Miranda Paul is about a girl named Isatou Ceesay.  She really wants people to not use plastic bags because it is not good for the environment. She lived in Gambia is really beautiful.

We also watched a “TED Talk” about a team of sisters named Melati and Isabell Wijsen who made it their mission to get rid of plastic bags in Bali by the year 2018. Something that is really impressive is that they are only 20 years old and they reached their goal one year ahead of time!



Some similar things about the movie and the book are they both have the lonley party and winn- Dixie also gets lost when the party is going on. Another one is Amanda’s brother drowned when he was 5 years old.  Another similarity is Otis goes to jail in both the book and the movie. Yet another similarity is that  Gloria Dump still has a mistake tree.

There are some differences between the book and the movie, too. One difference is that when the rainstorm occurs, Winn Dixie hides in Gloria Dump house. In the movie, Winn Dixie runs away. Another difference is that the preacher comes t the party in the book. However, in the movie, Winn Dixie runs away instead.
