The Retelling Of A Story: The Wizard Of Oz In China
I have been working on our homeschooling curriculum for next year. After completing a year of homeschooling successfully (by which I mean we are all still alive!) I am empowered to delve deeper into certain subjects. I enjoy the concept of the recreation of a myth or story influenced by various cultures. I came across this artists rendition of the Wizard Of Oz with an Asian perspective.
I think it is important for children to realize that there is no 'right way' for a story to be told and that one culture is as significant as another. Far from Kansas,
Billy Nunez, a Boston based artist created the illustrations for this book titled The Wizard Of Oz In China.
What are some of your favorite retellings of familiar stories?
