Thank goodness there are so many different ways to experience the magic of Alice in Wonderland. There is the original chapter book plus many, many variations at all different reading levels. There are several movies. And now there is an ebook app, Alicewinks.

Alice in Wonderland ebook to Celebrate Alice’s 150th Anniversary
Instead, we used Alicewinks to get a multimedia video ebook experience. Yes, that’s a mouthful.

My 8-year-old was not a great napper as a toddler. By age 2, he had eliminated his nap altogether which was devastating for me as I was used to a two hour afternoon nap that I took along with his older sisters. So, instead, I let him watch PBS Kids for two hours of “downtime.”

Halloween eBook for Little Kids
What I really love about Winged Chariot iPhone/iPad/iPod ebooks is that they come in a slew of languages. Scruffy Kitty comes in Dutch, English, French, Spanish, and Japanese. These apps also always have a sticker app which is fun for kids. It would be a dream come true for me if my kids read this ebook in Spanish for fun! I am not holding my breath, but it might come true someday… Read more…
