Sharing the stories of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with you children has never been easier. The 150th Anniversary Animated Edition for Tablet Computers,” affectionately known to us as “Alicewinks“. Did you catch that? It’s The Adventures in Wonderland on video for apple devices and for android devices. Alice has many adventures in Wonderland and what is unique and different about this version is that they chose original illustrations. The original illustrations of a dozen early 20th century artists are used in this animated e-book creating 12 different depictions.
Alice always looks different and that was a little confusing to my children but to quote Alice, She is always changing. Children are always changing and Alice in wonderland is the completely spirit of a child. If a child created a world in their imagination Wonderland is what that world would be like because things somehow always work out. I was looking at Chapter 4 last night with my children and I found that that is one of the scenes in the story where Alice grows tall and small and tall and when the people start mocking her they also start throwing rocks. Suddenly the rocks turn into cakes and when she eats the cakes she turns small again. I mean what’s better than that? Save yourself in the story by changing the parameters. It made me smile to share the story with my kids. I think that’s something that I really like about Alicewinks, it brings the Adventures of Alice to live for my kids.
They can sit and listen to the story, they can do a read along and follow the words and they can see amazing artwork. It’s really a great way to use technology to share something magical with children. It’s an original idea to me because it’s not just a video of the story for the kids to watch it’s illustrations like a real book would be, I really thing it’s quite creative.
I was able to download my copy over Amazon and it was really easy to do. I found the link on the Alicewinks website and then I chose which device for Amazon to send it to. The thing I love about Amazon is that you can send it to all connected devices at once and that’s what I did. Of course you can also find these stories on iTunes and the Google Play store.
In celebration of the 150th Anniversary of Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland, Alicewinks brings the story’s classic illustrations to life for digital audiences through animated video and rich narration. To download this one of a kind iBook, visit iTunes.com/alicewinks
