In March, NPR's Backseat Book Club — our book group for younger listeners — is reading L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, first published in 1900.

And we're hoping that our trip down the yellow brick road will send you on a trip down memory lane. Did you or your kids ever dress up as Oz characters? If so, please share your photos with us.

Young readers: Dress up as your favorite Oz characters and ask an adult to help you send in a photo. Grown-up readers: If YOU dressed up as an Oz character when you were younger, we'd love to see that, too!

You can submit your photos here. We may feature some of your pictures on our Tumblr or our website.
