Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree: Levels 10-12: Treetops True Stories: Over the Rainbow by Ann Jungmann

TreeTops True Stories are exciting, motivating non-fiction books which will broaden your pupils' reading experience. They are part of a structured reading programme for juniors. The story of Judy Garland's (Frances Gumm's) early years up until the point where she is made world famous upon the release of the phenomenally successful The Wizard of Oz. Almost all children will be familiar with this film, and recognise the almost iconographic image on the cover. However, what they might not realise is the struggle, pain and determination that the young Frances Gumm went through in order to achieve her fame. The relationship with her domineering mother, adoring sisters and the early death of her beloved father are all explored. What emerges is a tale that might seem like everyone's dream of the bright lights and gilded hall of fame, but in reality was to rob the young star of a proper childhood and chance of long-term happiness. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk. This book is also available as part of a mixed pack of 6 different books or a class pack of 36 books of the same Oxford Reading Tree level.
