My Cup of Tea!
In the past, all I knew about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was what I heard or had seen in the movies. Alicewinks was a huge eye-opener! Who knew there were so many other wonderfully strange characters?! From the funny fish and frog footmen to the duchess and her morals with the pepper-obsessed cook to the mock turtle and griffon, all are very entertaining along with all the other characters like the white rabbit, cheshire cat, mad hatter and march hare, as well as Alice herself. This iBook is very interactive and allows you to discover new things about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by reading the full text, flipping through beautiful, original illustrations from 12 different artists, and even sit back and relax as the whole story is brought to life through animation with a full cast of voices and sound effects. This is a new, innovative approach to recreating a classic story! I would recommend Alicewinks for children and adults alike. Everyone can enjoy this iBook and spend hours reading, watching, and discovering new things about the classic, original tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I hope that they create more interactive iBooks like this one!
Beautiful and entertaining!!!
Whimsical and visually appealing, Alicewinks is the perfect animated eBook. Sometimes too much of a variety of illustrated styles can look chaotic and confusing but Alicewinks was able to harmoniously blend all the illustration together. Alicewinks gives life to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland through the animation. I can’t wait to see more!
Alice Winks is a delightful ebook that educators for upper elementary school could use to teach literature in a variety of ways. Each chapter is nicely divided into three sections: video, pictures and text. Educators can differentiate their assignments as students have the option of reading and/or reviewing with the video and animation. Alice Winks also offers the reader a range of artistic interpretations of characters and events. Educators can support lesson plans with creative analysis of the art.
