Publisher Description:

It is . . .

A book written by L. Frank Baum in 1900

The story that introduced the world to Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, and the Wicked Witch of the West

America’s best-loved homegrown fairy tale

All of the above


We’re off to see the Wizard…along with Dorothy, Toto, and all of her friends as they make their way onto the What Is the Story of? list.

When L. Frank Baum wrote about the adventures of a young farm girl named Dorothy and her pet dog in the magical Land of Oz in 1900, he wanted to create a beautiful story based on the America he knew and treasured. But he had no idea his book would become a bestseller and grow into the cultural phenomenon that it is today. After the iconic 1939 film, numerous sequels, retellings, and musicals, it’s easy to see why The Wizard of Oz has been called “America’s greatest and best-loved homegrown fairytale.” From Baum’s first book through Wicked, the story of The Wizard of Oz is as fascinating as the tale itself.

Learning history is so much more than dry boring facts regurgitated to fill in worksheets and quizzes. Rather, learning history should be about understanding the people and events of people - people who are just like us, people who have experienced events that changed their life as they knew it.

Covering a variety of American history events that have changed our world, this well-written series will engage children and help them understand the impact of the events that occurred during each time period. Black and white illustrations, maps, and sixteen pages of authentic photos bring a real-life experience to our children. Timelines and a bibliography are also included to enhance learning. These would make wonderful read-aloud or engage children in self-reading. An appealing supplement to any history program or to keep learning fresh through the summer. PB. 106 pgs. ~Deanne
