The Wizard of Oz

17 01 2010

We’ve been reading aloud from The Wizard of Oz. I’ve read a lot of Oz books, because my aunt is an Oz scholar, but between umpteen viewings of Judy Garland’s version, somehow I was never interested enough to read the famous first book.

So now we’ve read it. I actually was impressed by how faithfully the movie hewed to the story — if you’ve seen the movie, you have all the key elements of the book, from the charlatan wizard from Omaha to the poppy fields and the winged monkeys. An enjoyable — and very fast — read aloud; we did it in two one hour read-aloud blocks.
