Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Suitable for: 7-11 years (Key stage 2), 11-14 years (Key stage 3), Teachers

This collection contains painted tactile pictures taken from illustrations from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The audio guide does not tell the story but describes the tactile pictures. It provides a wonderful springboard for the young person to read or listen to the classic story for themselves. Perfect to inspire a love of reading for pleasure.

Feel all round and over the table and see what you can find. It's a very long table, isn't it? Can you feel the edge of the white tablecloth hanging over the side opposite where the animals and the Hatter are seated - and down the far end of the table opposite Alice? Below the hemline of the cloth three sturdy table legs are showing. Now, for how many guests is the table set? Have you found 6 cups and saucers? No wonder Alice complained that there was plenty of room. There's one other much larger shape on the table and that is the silver teapot into which the March Hare and the Hatter were trying to stuff the sleepy Dormouse when Alice left in disgust.

Wonderful My daughter was thrilled to feel the individual cups on the table, and the look on her face when she realised the cat's body had disappeared was wonderful. Dorothy
