Maybe it’s because (because, because, because….) I was born in Kansas, but I am a big fan of The Wizard of Oz. Although I am a strong advocate for reading–as in real books—I must sheepishly admit it was the movie that captured my brain, my heart, and my bravery when I was a child. In addition, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” remains my favorite song. So while I was making the illustrations for Rainbow Stew, I had some fun. There are at least five items from the story hidden in the illustrations. See if you can find them! You’re welcome to email me with your list.
