Episode: Fibbed Big

Hello there, little ones!

I have really missed seeing you!

And that’s the TRUTH!

Sadly, sometimes people will tell lies.

But it is SO IMPORTANT to always tell the truth because fibs can affect others and make people feel very bad.

Today’s story is a cautionary tale on how important it is to

STICK TO THE TRUTH!

The story of

Edwurd Fudwupper

FIBBED BIG

explained by his sister, Fannie Fudwupper

with author

Berkeley Breathed

(Helping Slightly)

is the tale of a liar so amazing, so outrageous, so talented, that no one is spared. Edwurd Fudwupper spends all his time cooking up fibs full of phooey and letting them rip.

But one day, Edwurd tells such a world-class lie,

such a humdinger,

that the army, the air force, and the dog catcher are called to try to reverse the damage Edwurd’s lie has wrought – with little success!

I do hope you’ll meet Oma in her Reading Room where we will discover together how an unlikely heroine comes to Edwurd’s rescue in the end!

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: 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: Why Christmas Trees Aren’t Perfect

Hello, my little friends!

Oma & Gompy’s very own Small Pine.

Long, long ago

in a land far away,

lived a perfect little tree named Small Pine.

Small Pine hoped to maintain its perfect form and be selected by the Queen as her Christmas tree. But as the warm-hearted little tree gave shelter to rabbits, birds, and deer in the forest, its branches became damaged. All the other trees in the evergreen forest laughed at Small Pine’s kindness and said Small Pine would never be chosen by the Queen now.

Have you ever offered help or support toward someone, even in the midst of ridicule from friends or those around you?
