Off to See the Wizard.....

A friend of mine used Abby's Wizard of Oz unit this week in her classroom. I love how she let her kids choose the colors they wanted to use for their socks, slippers, and sneakers. I also love the book she brought in to use with the lesson.

She did not read this book in its entirety. It is not a storybook. She used some of the illustrations from the more familiar illustrators. Tomie dePaola's vision of the Wizard of Oz was perfect for bringing in "sparkly" sneakers for boys.

Here are a few pictures of the other pages in the book. See if you can guess the illustrator.

I'm trying to find that book (I MUST have it) but am getting lost in the Emerald City! :) If you have a second, could you share a link?
