Bed time story: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

With a desire to read more colorful, classic, longer chapter stories to the 5yr old boy, I scrolled through the free selection available for the iPad and found The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

So, we’ve all grown up with the movie I’m sure. Seen it dozens of times. Always on TV over Easter weekend at Gradma’s house (for whatever reason). Hide your head when the flying monkeys come down. Cheer when the Wicked Witch takes a bath. But it ain’t nothing like the book. Would it be scary? Is it too much for the kids to hear? Nope.

Perfect. What a joy to read so far. I’ll try to make notes as we go and some brief comparisons of what makes the book a great selection to read. How fun.
