In this story a little girl, Alice is sitting with her sister when she spots a white rabbit which she decides to follow. while following the rabbit she fell into a rabbit hole which brings her to a strange new land where nothing is as it seems. in this journey she encounters talking animals, mad hatters, queens, and smoking caterpillars. When she finally makes her way back to her own world she discovered that she was dreaming the whole time.
Personal Reaction:
I personally love this story because its so unusual and requires a vivid and active imagination.
Classroom Extension ideas:
1. Have the kids create their own story of a dream they have had or would like to have.
2. Have the students create their own world in a drawing with a presentation of what is going on in their world.

Listened to this book again. I think it is a very interesting book and some dialogs are truely captivating. It should not come as a surprise that some of my favorite quotes come from this classic.
This said, it is not really my cup of tea. I find it too confusing and I tend to loose track of the underlying message.
I will try to read it. ( )

Alice transports herself to the non-sense world Wonderland. After her adventures she returns home to her beloved cat Dina and her family. Was she there or was it all a dream?

Personal Reaction:
I had a wonderful time re-reading this, I had forgotten how enjoyable the actual book was compared to the movie.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. English Literature classes I believe that this would be perfect or creative writing classes.
2. Showing critical thinking skills and decision making for a child as well as consequences of the decisions they make.
3. Language arts application because of some of the language used as well as showing the monarch of other kingdoms and how they could treat their subjects. ( )

I once read Alice in Wonderland when I was younger and I thought it was okay. Not amazing, but okay. I reread it now a few years later in this edition and I think it was the illustrations that did it for me. I really enjoyed the story. The pictures brought so much to the story. I would recommend this edition. 5 out of 5 stars. ( )

It's just a delicious, borderline hallucinatory, confection of a book. Invention and imagination tumble over each other in the excitement, and there is something in there to delight every reader. There are countless plays on words (the mouse giving a very dry lecture on William the Conqueror to restore those who have been soaked by Alice's gigantic tears is the one that, for some reason, pleased me most), verbal pyrotechnics and semantic shenanigans to please the "ordinary" reader. And although they entirely passed me by at the time, I know now from various more scientifically-minded friends that their childish interests snagged on the mathematician author's various numerical and logic puzzles.
added by Cynfelyn | editThe Guardian, Lucy Mangan (Oct 10, 2009)
Ingpen's art brings something genuinely new to it, a cloudlike insubstantiality tinged with a little bit of thunderhead.

All in the golden afternoon
Full leisurely we glide;
For both our oars, with little skill,
By little arms are plied,
While little hands make vain pretense
Our wanderings to guide

Ah, cruel Three! In such an hour,
Beneath such dreamy weather,
To beg a tale of breath too weak
To stir the tiniest feather!
Yet that can one poor voice avail
Against three tongues together!

[plus another five verses]
First words
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"
And she tried to fancy what the flame of a candle looks like after the candle is blown out, for she could not remember ever having seen such a thing.
'Curiouser and coriouser!' cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); ...
How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spread his claws,
And welcome little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!
'Ahem!' said the Mouse with an important air, 'are you all ready? This is the driest thing I know. Silence all round, if you please! "William the Conqueror, whose cause was favoured by the pope, was soon submitted to by the English, who wanted leaders, and had been of late much accustomed to usurpation and conquest. Edwin and Morcar, the earl of Mercia and Northumbria -"'
'You are old, Father William,' the young man said,
'And your hair has ecome very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?'

Book description
In the most renowned novel by English author Lewis Carroll, restless young Alice literally stumbles into adventure when she follows the hurried, time-obsessed White Rabbit down a hole and into a fantastical realm where animals are quite verbose, logic is in short supply, and royalty tends to be exceedingly unpleasant. Each playfully engaging chapter presents absurd scenarios involving an unforgettable cast of characters, including the grinning Cheshire Cat and the short-tempered Queen of Hearts, and every stop on Alice's peculiar journey is marked by sharp social satire and wondrously witty wordplay.
With drawn screens, animation and music. The viewer can follow the story and answer questions or follow the story and see animations.
Haiku summary
Down the rabbit hole,
Alice ponders madness that
unfolds strange places.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 144042909X, Paperback)

Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.

For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
