So important, don’t you think? This is Susan’s daughter. I sent this book to Susan after her name was drawn in a contest.
It’s incredible to me how one story continues to captivate audiences and readers. The year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of the movie The Wizard of Oz continues, and this makes me proud to be a resident of the Buckeye state! I thought it was wonderfully creative. What do you think?
See? Kids still love it and who doesn’t have a favorite character?
If you look around in bookstores, on the Internet, and on television, you’re bound to notice sooner or later that this year marks the 75th anniversary of the movie The Wizard of Oz! This is a great time for fans of the movie to pick up memorabilia dedicated to this special birthday.

|She later sent me this for St. Patrick’s Day!|
“In ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ the fact is clearly recognized that the young as well as their elders love novelty.”
Now isn’t that the truth still today!
“There seems to be an inborn love of stories in child minds, and one of the most familiar and pleading requests of children is to be told another story.”
I certainly hope that’s still true!
“…it will indeed be strange if there be a normal child who will not enjoy the story.”
What an endorsement! 🙂

While it’s been 75 years since MGM introduced the movie, my readers know the story has been around a lot longer than that. This fall will mark 114 years since L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published.
But most folks are more familiar with the movie, and I have to admit it’s one of my all time favorites. Since the theme of Annie’s Stories is finding the place where your heart finds a home, I thought I’d celebrate with this clip.
