This Halloween story was surprisingly delightful! Fun how the dachshund saved the day (or night) at the lake because he had a different perspective on things, and saw the monster for what it was. Cute! ( )

One of my favorite Halloween read alouds. ( )

Adorable story about a weiner pup and his friends. The pup isn't so excited about his Halloween costume but it ends up saving the day in the end! ( )

Cute little book. Typical moral of "acceptance." I enjoyed the pictures and think little kids would probably like this story. ( )

Although this is a holiday book, it does more than get kids in the spirit for Halloween. I found this book very humorous and enlightening. I think it is important to choose books with a message when sharing. Bullying and friendship are the central themes throughout, which are the problems among children today. A gang of dogs pick on and tease Oscar, the dachshund, for the way he looks, and then for his costume. However, the saying "what goes around, comes around" applies to the events in this book. This is because, the cats prank the gang of dogs. Oscar, because of his short legs that the gang once teased him about, could see something the others could not. This observation allowed him to rescue his friends from the prank of the cats. His friends realized that everyone looks different and is special in their own way. They thanked Oscar for his bravery and never teased him again. ( )
