(Pardon the language) But, yes, it doesn‘t get much better than that.
My very favorite. 🤣🌪
#JumpStart2021 #BookThatStartedYourReadingObsession I was absolutely obsessed with this series when I was 7yrs old! I read & reread every book my local library had. It seemed at times I was bringing them back just to reborrow them. My favourites were Ozma Of Oz & TikTok Of Oz. The world was so vivid in my mind, I could see the queen that had a different head for every day & the Wheelers just terrified me. Highly recommend for kids of all ages🙌
Team PreK is at it again. Doing Team costumes has become one of my favorite things.
So I‘m in a play that a friend of mine wrote; it‘s called Oz.Org and will be part of the upcoming Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Oz.org is the a new retelling of The Wizard of Oz but with a digital age spin! This is my set-up: my laptop, a ring light, and some green paper! It looks simple, but creating theatre over Zoom is NOT easy. 🎭🌈🌺🐕🦺👠💻
I‘ll post a link later this week in case anyone wants to check it out!
The copy of this book I own is falling apart, sadly, so I had to finish reading it on ebook, but I got this far physically! #doublespin
In the author‘s note to my edition, Baum insists that his children‘s story is unlike those of Andersen and Grimm, free of “heartaches and nightmares.” This comment amused me as getting picked up by a cyclone wouldn‘t be full of “wonderment” for me. Also reminded me of the many Ozs I‘ve met in my life, a good reminder in itself of the value of independence and independent thinking.
Day 1 #ifyoulikethis Roger S. Baum is the great grandson of L. Frank Baum and is continuing the Wizard of Oz series. I have meet him twice at book signs and he is very nice and gracious. The book on the left is a story about Dorothy getting lost in the woods. And the book on the right explains how the lion got to Oz. @Klou
The book store I work at is opening up to shoppers today (with restrictions and precautions in place) - a lovely and talented friend made these masks for me which I will be wearing to help keep myself and others safe.
I did some #audio baking today!
When I went out to the store today, there was only two loaves of bread in the entire place. So instead of taking bread another person may have needed, I decided to make my own. I live in a small town, and as soon as shelves are stocked, people hoard the food. I hope my small gesture helped someone in need.
Giving this a try today! I want to be transported to a magical world right now, so I am trying this on #audiobook. So far, it‘s keeping my interest!
Good. I listened to the audiobook version of this which was narrated by Anne Hathaway and it was brought to life by this wonderful actress, as she did all the voices of the characters which made it all the more wonderful. Enjoyed seeing the differences between the much loved film and the book which as usual is many but it is always good to get back to the original material.
WTF? Guess I shouldn‘t be surprised by things anymore.
I was fortunate enough to see the Royal Winnipeg Ballet‘s INCREDIBLE rendition of Wizard of Oz. Wowsa! I don‘t know where to start! I think the flying monkeys were my fav. Write up and more awesome photos (including the ones here):
#favoritebooktomovieadaptation You really have to ask? 😄 I guess it‘s only #humannature to long for home. And some of the magic in Oz seems a bit like #weirdscience #movember #gratefulreads #namastenovember #multitasking 🌪🌈👠
Saw this on my feeds today and thought it was a great story to share. They are building an actual yellow brick road in Humboldt Park where Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz. #yellowbrickroad #wizardofoz #theresnoplacelikehome
It recently occurred to me that I had never read this book. (I know.) So, I rectified that! It was a fun listen, though I‘m a little surprised at the amount of violence and talk of killing others in a children‘s book. I‘m not sure how this would be received in a new book nowadays.
I haven‘t read the tagged book, but I was scared a little of this movie when I was a kid & still don‘t like it. My sister loves it. I wasn‘t a fan of the flying monkeys or the Wicked Witch. The Scarecrow is sweet and the only one that came to mind for this prompt. I do love Wicked though. #scarathlon #chillingphotochallenge @Clwojick #teamslaughter
Day three - #7days7covers #covercrush
@AC4ever17 would you like to play?
Post a cover you love each day for seven days
No explanation needed. Tag someone new each day.
Cover art by painter and illustrator Rachell Sumpter.
This is my cover pick for the day. I'm posting this blurb first tho, so the posts appear in the right chronological order in your feed!
This is the explanation. This is The Wizard of Oz from the Penguin Threads editions.
The designs are hand stitched. The top photo shows the outside cover and flaps. The bottom photo shows the inside cover which shows the reverse side of the embroidered piece.
West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh Pa celebrates 80th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz. Adorable! I think the book we are sharing #LMPBC is perfect! Check out the story online

Hubby and I were trying to explain this to our kids tonight. They seriously have no concept of it at all. I told them how my mom would mark on the calendar the day every year that The Wizard of Oz would come on and we'd mark off the days. Then we had to sit down at that time and watch it WITH commercials! They thought we were kidding at first. I was 11 yrs old before we got our first VCR 🤪
For the #Hr30challenge in the #24in48 #readathon My entry is a mix of MG books I adored as a child(The Oz series, Toms Midnight Garden, Enid Blyton,The Poky Little Puppy), new MG like The Tea Dragon Society & the Disney set that I collected from my local paper & in the lower left corner, Bookworm, a memoir about childhood reading that got me right in the feels. And my beautiful granddaughter in the middle, who‘s already a reader like her nanna!♥️
I‘ve now read 2 twists on this story (Wicked series and Dorothy Must Die series) so I think it might be time to read the original. Also book 3 in the Dorothy series isn‘t available at the moment so I have to wait for my hold.
Just planted in my town the rest is coming over the summer. 💚Please join us in supporting an enchanting outdoor exhibit located on the grounds of Herrick District Library and Centennial Park. Bronze sculptures, a living floral mosaic, the yellow-brick road, and whimsical horticulture will honor L. Frank Baum who penned the classic tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, while staying at his family cottage in Macatawa.
The Wizard of Oz : one of my favorite books & movie since I was little ??
This is much harder than I thought cause of the bright sunlight LOL and then there‘s the "putting back all the books to where they belong" part which is the hardest! ? I guess I do have more green books than I thought, they are just scattered all over the place?
