Happy Birthday L. Frank Baum !

Today we will read The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Our copy was Farmer Dad's as a young boy.
We have a few print outs to color and maybe Princess will watch the movie
with her Grandpa when he visits. They often watch it together and sing along.
It is a lovely day here, so maybe we'll have lunch outside and do more reading and playing when Grandpa leaves.
I'll update later with some pics, but for now,
"We're off to see the Wizard..."
Unfortunately, Grandpa had to cancel
today, but he will try again tomorrow.
Here is our "movie snack" of cupcake
and smoothie.

That is a good book.

I have heard the sequels are good as well.

Is your version abridged? I thought the book was too involved for a young reader (listener) but I've not actually read it.

Princess sure is lucky that you have such a celebrating spirit.

Kitty loved that book. I was unable to locate many of the sequels, unfortunately. I used to love the stories of Ozma when I was young.

Yummy looking celebration food!!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
