Book Nook

My children received multiple books for Christmas; one of them was The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I’d read the book years ago, but not with the kids. They haven’t even seen the film. This version is abridged slightly, but does not change the original details, such as Dorothy wearing silver shoes instead of ruby slippers. Charles Santore’s illustrations are vivid and beautiful, capturing Baum’s descriptions well. The story, of course, is a captivating classic the kids love. If you have only seen the film, you should pick up the book! It’s sure to fire your kids’ imaginations.
