A New Kind Of Reading #Alicewinks #spon

My mom gave Nutty a Nook for her 7th birthday a few days ago.  She was thrilled!  Nutty LOVES to read.  Don’t get me wrong, she is more than excited that she can download apps on her Nook, but she is most excited that she can read with it.  What a perfect time to review our first ever multimedia book–Alicewinks!


​What is Alicewinks you ask?  

“Alicewinks is a multimedia iBook that brings the timeless illustrations of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to life for digital audiences. Alicewinks pairs a rich narration of Lewis Carroll’s unabridged text with 193 original illustrations by twelve early 20th century artists, all brought together for tablets in animated, portrait-oriented video.”  

In other words, it’s the original Alice In Wonderland for modern kids.

Ok, before I go on, you may or may not have noticed that the quote above stated that Alicewinks is an iBook.  Yes, Alicewinks is available on iTunes, but you can find it on Google Play and Amazon for those of us who prefer Droid based products.  In fact, when I tried to load the book onto my sister’s iPad, I had problems with it.  I don’t know if I’m Apple clueless or what, but it was a snap to load it to Nutty’s Nook via Google Play.  


Now for the book itself…I could go on and on, but I think I’ll bullet point the highlights to save both you and me time:

  • Both Nutty and Tottie LOVED the multimedia format.  They thought it was “awesome” that the pictures moved.  Tottie thought it was cool that she could ‘read’ a book by herself (i.e. the book was narrated) and Nutty enjoyed the narration helping her with the harder words.  
  • The book is a bit long (and a large file too) but neither girl seemed to mind as long as we split it up a bit.  In fact, they looked forward to reading it every day.
  • I was confused by the different illustrations but the girls liked them.  (Alicewinks includes 193 original illustrations from twelve early 20th century artists.)  Nutty and Tottie thought it was fun to guess what color hair Alice would have next.  They simply thought the different versions of Alice were party of the story!

All in all, Alicewinks is definitely a book I would recommend for both children who have never heard of Alice in Wonderland and for those who have read it (or seen it in movie form) over and over again.  

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
