A couple of weeks back, amid all the buzz on the new prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Oz, The Great and Powerful, I found that most networks on TV started to get on the Oz bandwagon and show the great original movie about Dorothy and that dog Toto.

With it now being 74 years old, my three-year-old daughter watched her first screening of it and I can now agree that this is a timeless classic. She loved it and wants to watch it over and over, just like I did.

She experienced her first meetings with the little munchkins, the Wicked Witch of the West and East and Glinda the Good Witch, to name some of many. I found myself stuck again in the world of Oz, but this time, through my daughter's eyes.

I enjoyed this movie as much as I did when I was a child. This, to me, was a special moment to spend with my daughter. The moral of the story still remains as relevant to today as it was to yesterday. It struck a chord in me as it will in my daughter one day, "there's no place like home".
