About the story

When little Alice falls down a rabbit hole, she finds herself in a bizarre Wonderland of strange creatures and situations. She shrinks and expands without warning, nearly drowns in a pool of her tears, and plays croquet using a flamingo mallet. She also meets a grinning cat, a hair-raising queen, a mad hatter, a mock turtle, and a smoking caterpillar—to name just a few. What’s it all about? Imagination, of course—but there’s more to this “literary nonsense.” Just like kids’ adventures in real life, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland help her work through awkwardness, confusion, and sadness to get where she’s going.

Everything in this “experience guide” comes from our unique sensory workshops on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It’s packed with hands-on ways to get into the characters’ shoes. When kids see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and DO what the characters did, they understand more. Better yet, they want to read more.

LitWits Explorer’s Guides are web pages packed with downloadables—templates, activity aids, academic handouts, and more. (Here’s a sample, for a different book.) Because our guides live online, we can link you to useful info and audiovisuals. And you’ll always have the very latest updates!
