Frank Baum was an American author who lived from 1856 to 1919. Frank Baum is, of course, best known for his Wizard of Oz stories. I'm afraid they're a bit long for me to include on the website. However, he also wrote a lovely set of short stories for children based on Mother Goose nursery rhymes. He also wrote quite a few poems. My girls and I love his stories based on nursery rhymes and I thought I'd try to share some with you as I don't often see them anymore (which I think is rather sad as he's such a great writer). They're actually an interesting read for grades 3 thru 5 -- it tickles many children to read 'the story behind the nursery rhyme' -- it's sort of like getting the inside scoop.
