Lending My Voice to The Wizard of Oz

I love reading aloud and so had a lot fun, at ALA, participating in the Lend Your Voice initiative by reading a page from L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz along with such luminaries as her, him, her, her, her, her, and her.  The whole list of narrators can be seen at this Random House Audio blog post where they write, “The finished audiobook will be available at http://www.firstbook.org, with all proceeds going to First Book, a children’s literacy organization that provides books to underprivileged children and their communities.”
