Oz in the News 2.5.12

First Look! A Flying Monkey From Oz: The Great & Powerful!  Disney‘s prequel to the Wizard of Oz, titled Oz: The Great and Powerful, which stars James Franco as the man himself, is well into production, and a Perezcious reader sent us this really neat photo that an extra posted on Facebook – with a flying monkey!

Wizard of Oz from TabTale This app retell the famous story and includes activities to do throughout the story.  The child can also interact with the app by tapping on items and make them move.  The graphics and color are marvelous and will definitively attract my little girl.    The reader takes her time to read the story and also includes various tone in her voice to attract the interest of a child.   The story is different than the one seen in the movie but I must be honest in telling you that I have never read the original story so I do not know if this app is based on the original story or not.
