The Wondrous Wizdom of Oz: A Spiritual Odyssey is a fresh look at the The Wonderful Wizard of Oz--a classic that has much to teach us about life, about ourselves, and the choices we make. Dorothy and Toto's incredible journey home never grows old. But where exactly is home?

Along this illuminated path, we meet some of the Earth's most enlightened journeymen-from Nelson Mandela to John Lennon, Ann Frank, Elton John, Jesus and Buddha, to the Zen masters. Their words of wisdom, along with Oz, Dorothy, and her companions, remind us that we, too, are wise, courageous and loving, if we only listen to our spirit.

In The Wizdom of Oz, old professor Theo takes a bunch of his best-loved students on a journey through this brightly-lit and colourful place, the mythical planet of Oz, where the hearts and minds of its inhabitants and its visitors is more visible than they are in the half-light, or the humdrum of ordinary existence on planet Earth. He shows them what this place, or this state of mind, really has to offer anyone ready to follow their hearts and light up their lives. The original Wizard of Oz was written over a century ago but its hidden messages are as pertinent now as ever. This entertaining book can be read in less than an hour but it can help you for the rest of your life.

From the bedtime story by L. Frank Baum to the classic 1939 film, no story has captured the imaginations of generations of children — and adults — like The Wizard of Oz. The story of Dorothy’s journey through Oz, the colorful characters, places, songs, and dialogue have permeated popular culture around the world. The contributors to this volume take a very close look at The Wizard of Oz and ask the tough questions about this wonderful tale. They wonder if someone can possess a virtue without knowing it, and if the realm of Oz was really the dream or if Kansas was the dream. Why does water melt the Wicked Witch of the West and why does Toto seem to know what the other characters can’t seem to figure out? The articles included tackle these compelling questions and more, encouraging readers to have discussions of their own.

Offering a charming mix of the pedagogical and the personal, this book paves the way through the wilderness of rosters, meetings, lesson plans, and initiatives so that teachers can engage with their most authentic selves in the midst of the assumptions and illusions inside of education. "The way Nathan and Herbie bring out challenging ideas and opportunities in education through the connection to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz did all the things that I hope for when reading any book; it made me laugh, cry, and think." -- George Couros (@gcouros), author of The Innovator's Mindset and Innovate Inside the Box "Written from the heart and based on experience and expertise in the field, Nathan and Herbie guide educators down the 'yellow brick road, ' encouraging us to make connections, challenge assumptions, and land back on purpose." -- Dr. Jennifer Williams (@JenWilliamsEdu), author of Teach Boldly "By traveling through Oz, we learn concrete strategies to embrace the type of teaching and learning that will light a fire beneath us! And the magic of the strategies is this: everything we need to become the teacher we always wanted to be is already inside of us."-- Katie Novak, Ed.D.

Perspective and Narrator The Wonderful Wizard of Oz brings the reader through a third-person point of view through the use of an accompanying narrator. Themes of home, journeying and hidden strength are expounded on through the use of the third-person narrator. About the Title The book puts the focus on Dorothy, an orphaned girl who is the main character and frequently seeks the advice of the wonderful wizard thus making the wizard an essential character. In the end, Dorothy discovered the man was just an ordinary person with a wonderful heart but not a wizard as many people in Oz think. "The wonderful wizard of Oz" is a beautiful story and the author himself defined it as a modern fairytale. We have to keep in mind that even though it has been more than a hundred years since this book was published it still carries the name of a modern fairytale. It was published around the time that the Grimm brothers and Charles Perrault were publishing and even then it was different from all the other fairytales. While he was writing the book, the author thought that the kids need a story with no ghosts, fairies, or any scary events. He wanted to entertain the children and keep the book full of joy and without sadness. He stated that in the preface of the book. In every modern fairytale, the author follows his idea and gets a lot of poeticism and joy into the story, and leaves out the cruelty and sadness. In this book, we will meet the Wicked Witch from the East and one from the West but instead of being scary, they are funny. The book has a lot of positive characters such as Dorothy and her friends Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman. They represent three very important characteristics such as courage, wisdom, and sensitivity. The witches are divided into the good ones and the bad ones. Even though the author wanted to entertain the kids this book carries a moral lesson. Everything that we admire can be found in ourselves and we just need to know how to recognize it. The author tries to tell us that we can do miracles every single day even if they are small because the small things make life real. Besides all of that, it is important not to be selfish because together we can find the true meaning of life.
