One of my all-time favorite classics is The Wizard of Oz. Like many people, I watched the old classic movie long before I ever picked up the book. Boy was I surprised with how different the two versions were.
I was even more surprised when I read a few storybook versions with my kids years later and realized, as it often happens, that even they were much different from each other. Whether you’re reading the old classic version or a new storybook, your kids are sure to love Dorothy and all her friends.
And, if they love the story as much as my kids and I do, they’ll really enjoy all the fun activities I found to enhance your read-aloud time. Don’t forget to scroll down and print out your FREE 60-page Wizard of Oz printable, too!
