Summary

Summary

You just never know when a twister is going to whisk you off to a magical land of witches, munchkins, and great adventures with new friends. One minute Dorothy and her dog Toto were home in Kansas, and the next they were teaming up with the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man, and Scarecrow to save the magical land of Oz from the Wicked Witch. Best of all, they realized how brave, loving, and kind each of their friends are, and that no matter how wonderful an adventure may be, there just isn't any place as wonderful as home.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Maggie Blossom's very abridged version of The Wizard of Oz is minimally brought to iconographic life in this skimpy DVD offering. Blossom distills the basic pieces of L. Frank Baum's story into a board book version (Flowerpot, 2014), with illustrations by Asha Pearse, but loses the soul of the tale in the process. Narrator Susie Berneis does the best she can with the uninspired text. Fleeting moments of energy are injected into the production, courtesy of copyright-safe nods to the Broadway musical The Wiz and Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's beloved ukulele rendition of "Somewhere over the Rainbow." It's also difficult to overlook the directional sign misspelled "Witches Castle," instead of "Witch's Castle." VERDICT Overall, this DVD was a misguided effort.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Minnesota Department of Education, Roseville © Copyright 2014.
