Episode: The Hallo-Wiener

Oma loves Halloween!

And so does her magical-golden-dog Helen, too.

Because the best part of Halloween is the “dressing-up” we get to do!

A magical lion & her lion-tamer!

But this year – there’s just one thing Helen wants to know…….

When is a hot dog not a hot dog?

When he becomes a hero sandwich!

Giggles.

Oma tells us all about this funny tale in today’s episode of Oma’s Reading Room, as she reads the great trick-or-treat story of:

The Hallo-Wiener!

Written & Illustrated by Dav Pilkey!

Author Dav Pilkey delivers a hilarious Halloween treat in this story about Oscar, a dachshund doomed to wear a hot dog costume on Halloween.

However, when he saves the day — and night — Oscar proves that while he may be short on height, he’s long on heart!

This is a tale trick-or-treaters everywhere are sure to relish.

Helen sure does hope you’ll join Oma in her Reading Room, to discover how all the dogs become friends forever and Oscar is never made fun of again!

Until next time…

remember Oma is sending you her 

hugs and her blessings

I hope you’ll catch them and hold them 

real tight! 

Bye-Bye!

Episode: Dog Breath

A long long time ago, before I was ever an Oma, I use to travel to local elementary schools and share story-time with students in their classrooms or their libraries.

Oma has always loved reading to groups of children and I am very grateful for the many invitations received throughout the years to spend time with my little-friends in their classrooms & schools.

Sometimes Oma would even dress in character, so we could all use our imaginations better while reading the stories!

It was so much fun!!

Today’s story was the most requested book to be read at the many schools Oma was invited into, so I would always be sure to arrive in full-character for this particular book as…

SUZY the SMELL-CATCHER!!

All the children loved Suzy!

(Even adults, too!)

Big or little they always shared so many giggles together with Suzy about the many SMELLY things she was asked to dispose of!

Suzy was always sure to bring her “smell-catcher” case with her too – just incase the school had any smelly odors they needed captured in the school or classroom – while she was there.

However, Suzy would always tell the children the hardest smell to capture is the one depicted in the popular book Oma will be reading to you today :

DOG BREATH!!

Written & Illustrated by Dav Pilkey

Dog Breath is a story about a dog named Hally Tosis; who is a great family dog, but there is one rotten thing about her: her breath!

It is so smelly, Hally’s pet parents want to find a new home for her. The children, desperate to keep their beloved pet, try everything to rid Hally of her stinky stench. 

I do hope you’ll join me in Oma’s Reading Room, where we will read along together this hysterical and fan-favorite picture book! 

ANYONE who has ever had a dog with stinky breath is sure to relate to the story!

*Oma is so excited about the new film editor who is helping with her Reading Room episodes…her sister, Wendy!!

Until next time…

remember Oma is sending you her 

hugs and her blessings

I hope you’ll catch them and hold them 

real tight! 

Bye-Bye!

Episode: With A Little Help From My Friends

Hello there, little ones!

Welcome back to Oma’s Reading Room!

It has been awhile since we have been together

and Oma has missed you all

very much!

It can be lonely when we are apart from those we care about.

It can make us sad when this happens,

but we can all feel better with a little help.

And today’s book does just that!

With a Little Help from My Friends

written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

are the lyrics from one of the Beatle’s more popular songs

– which has been adapted into this beautiful book,

illustrated by Henry Cole.

I hope you’ll join me in Oma’s Reading Room as two friends realize that all they need is their

friendship

and

love

no matter how far apart they are

from one another!

Until next time, 

remember Oma is sending you her 

hugs and her blessings

I hope you’ll catch them and hold them 

real tight! 

Bye-Bye!
