Wizard of Oz Celebrates 75th Anniversary

The Wizard of Oz

Film stills and original dialogue from the beloved movie The Wizard of Oz tell the tale of a young girl named Dorothy who flies over the rainbow with her dog, Toto, befriends a Tin Man, a Scarecrow, and a Lion on a yellow brick road to the Emerald City, and defeats a Wicked Witch before meeting a Wizard and learning that there's no place like home.

We were outside sitting on the steps when Mommy brought this book out to me. I have watched the movie with her and love it. The book was easy for me to read and only needed help with a few words.

We love the pictures which are all from the movie. And although two of them seemed blurry we really liked how colorful they were.

The 411 by Maria:

This was one of my favorite movies growing up and love that my daughter shares the love with me. I love watching it with her and she finds it hard to believe that I was only able to see it once a year during Easter when it was aired on television.

The Wizard of Oz is celebrating it's 75th Anniversary this month. You will be seeing loads of Wizard of Oz memorabilia. McDonald's will even have the characters in the Happy meals.

Why I love this book is how the author managed to break the book down to make it very child friendly.  We don't get to know too much about each character but all the components are there which makes it a great way to introduce this timeless classic.

Also, the layout is wonderful. Classic storybook form with lots of photos and typeset to make the book even more stimulating for children.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest opinion.
