Presenting an excerpt from The Wizard of Oz (1903) by L. Frank Baum which tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, an illustration by W. W. Denslow, in honor of the release of the third Patronage Coloring Book to benefit the children’s literacy charity Kids Need To Read

“She threw her arms around the Lion’s neck and kissed him, patting his big head tenderly. Then she kissed the Tin Woodman, who was weeping in a way most dangerous to his joints. But she hugged the soft, stuffed body of the Scarecrow in her arms instead of kissing his painted face, and found she was crying herself at this sorrowful parting from her loving comrades.”
