It’s time to read Alice in Wonderland again. I have read it every 5 or 6 years since I was 13. It gets into my dreams, with a slightly different twist, and makes me see the world from a different angle each time I read it. Have you noticed that things tend to surface when you most need them?

My daughter has heard the story in Lewis Carrol’s words many times. I recently found a copy of the invitation to her fifth birthday party (10 years ago!) She and her friends went to see Tim Burton’s version of Alice last night. I can’t wait to hear what they think of it. I wonder how many of them have read the book?
Alice in Wonderland is a perfect book to read aloud. To kids, to adults, to the mirror. I also highly recommend reading anything by James Thurber aloud, The 13 Clocks and The Wonderful O are family favorites. And of course poetry. I just got my copy of Margie and I love her. But I beg of you…whatever you do, DO NOT read in “Poet Voice”. No.
