My son and I just finished reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.  Did you know that there are 13 books in the series of Oz?  My daughter and I had read this a few years ago and really enjoyed it.  My son enjoyed it, too.  So much, that we are now reading Book #2 in the Oz series, The Land of Oz.

The characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz are the same as are in the movie, but of course, we get to know them so much better in the book.  It is a delight to see the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and of course, Dorothy and Toto come to life in your imagination.  Everyone in this world takes an adventure like Dorothy does with her friends in order to find that one thing that they think is missing from their life.  Everyone can relate to this story.  It’s a fun read aloud for children of all ages.

Happy Reading!
