    Alice, listen and learn. Lose the baby book.

    Alice has a point. You’ve got to be dressed properly for whatever activity you’re going to do, just like mom keeps insisting on. It’s not right to have this kind of double-standard in kid’s books. If you’re going to fall down a rabbit hole, you should be wearing jeans, sneakers and a rugged leather jacket with elbow protectors.

    Oopsie, our Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting.Would love to see Alice’s version of Alice in Wonderland…with all her friends and family filling in for the Wonderland characters.

    Stick with Alice in Wonderland, Mom! It’s so much richer than any Little Oopsie babyish misadventure: expand your Alice’s horizons with Lewis Carroll’s Alice!

    “There’s a moral in this, of course.”

    Anyone get that?

    Children used to always be given a bath and wear fresh clothes for the afternoon (in my case, all of us were freshly dressed 4 children and myself, before their dad got home from work). Alice in the story was dressed for tea and the rabbit hole was a surprise adventure. And little girls did not wear jeans or overalls.

    It is a privilege to Mr. Thompson’s illustrations of Tenniel’s illustrations.

    “Our” Alice’s attention span is about right for her age. Two-thirds of my children/grandchildren wouldn’t sit still for Alice in Wonderland at the age of four; the other third were savants of one sort or another. Petey might have dug it at that age.

    A version of THIS Alice going to Wonderland could be interesting. I’ve seen many good versions. The best 2 were a 1985 TV adaptation which had so many of my TV favorites and a recent one that Si Fy channel did – such fun and with more imagination than Hollywood types can do.
