  3. I have watched this movie countless times and own it on VHS but have never read the book. We are trying to build a library of classics for our daughter and this would be a great addition.

  4. I remember when I first had this book read to me…2nd grade my teacher George Cagni. He was so awesome, he changed his voice with each character. Wow what memories!
    I think that’s one reason I love reading to my daughter, movies can never replace the memories of reading together.
    This book would be a great addition to our reading collection.
    Thanks so much for the chance.

  10. I loved the movie as a child every year it came on. I never got to watch the whole thing because it was past my bedtime. I’d love to share the story with my nephew. He’s the perfect age for this story now!🙂

  11. I remember when The Wizard of Oz was an Easter TV tradition. It’s so fun to share the books these classic movies originated from with my grandkids.

  12. This book has certainly become a classic and so well know because of the movie but I think it is always great to let children read the original book so they have an understanding for the original story line.

  14. Hi Ella. What a great choice for a giveaway. I haven’t read it since I was in high school, and would love to share it with my grandchildren now! I actually went through the first half-dozen or so of the series back in those days, and remember I got an amazing thought out of one of them. Badly paraphrased, “A good deed is usually done because the person wants to, but a someone willing to do a bad deed always needs to know “what’s in it for me?”

  15. When my daughter was 3, we took her to the mountains of North Carolina to the “Yellow Brick Road”. We all fell in love with this place and many times, I read the novel to my child. We watched the movie over and over. That was 47 years ago and many days I catch myself singing the song from the movie. I now have a 3 year old great grandson and would like for him to know the thrill of the “Yellow Brick Road”.

  16. I love this book/movie! It’s a tradition every year to watch it around Thanksgiving to kick off the holidays, we’ve been doing it since I was a kid (and my Mom before that) and continuing it with my children, a timeless classic!

  17. I liked this story as a kid. I bet my kids would like it as well.

  18. ‘The Wizard of Oz’ was one of my very favorite movies growing up and yet I’ve never read the book. I have read “Wicked” which is the book the musical is based on. I didn’t really like it. It was kind of crude and far-reaching.
    Thanks for the giveaway! I really can’t wait to see this movie!

  23. I read most of the Oz books when I was a child, but haven’t looked at them since then. I guess a trip down memory lane is in order.
