The Oz Adventures

Last night Patrick and Lizzie finished reading the 14th book of the original series of Oz books by L. Frank Baum. They had begun the series this past summer and have continued reading a few chapters together every night. Today was Patrick's birthday and we celebrated with a fitting journey to the Oz Museum. They've now decided they will delve into more Oz adventures by reading the additional canonical books which I believe total a whopping 40+ volumes (thank goodness for Amazon Prime!).

And to Patrick....I just want to say thank you for instilling such a love of reading and adventure in our girl....Happy Birthday!


  1. Just read your interesting interview on Bloesem and adore all the colors, creativity and happiness in your family home...and of course the love of reading!

  2. Welcome Karen! Thank you so much for your kind words. Stop by anytime--I try to post a few times a week :)
