The Hallo-Wiener is a super fun Halloween-themed picture book for Fall. It is written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey, the creator of the popular Dog Man and Captain Underpants series. The cute book tells the story of Oscar, a little dachshund who is constantly teased and bullied by the other dogs for his unusual shape and size. This is a great book for teaching children about the themes of bullying, acceptance, and courage.

This can help students develop their critical thinking skills and engage with the text on a deeper level.
