Alice in Wonderland travels into APP world

Alice in Wonderland has been captivating both the young and young at heart for over 150 years and is one of the most popular and beloved stories in modern literature. It was one of my favourites growing up and I have been known to pop in the movie version with Johnny Depp a couple of times or more. Imagine my excitement when I discovered this iconic story had traveled into the APP World!! Of course I had to give a try.

I was instantly captivated by the ease of this APP the instructions tab ensures that you become aware of all the magic that awaits you. You are also given the option of having the story narrated as you flip each page or to read it yourself. The green velvet book mark makes it easy to pick up where you left off. 

Unlike a print or movie version of Alice in Wonderland the APP version is interactive - riddles, puzzles and beautiful artwork keep readers engaged. It's a brilliant way to help young ones (and some adults too!) improve literacy skills; stimulate creativity, and be introduced to the world of art.

A few strokes on your screen and you can add to the imagery ...

Slide your finger across the screen and voila you discover a little magic...
This game had me hooked ... I did manage to score a point!

The mastermind behind this spectacular APP is Emmanuel Paletz -  an international award-winning creative consultant for the advertising industry, working for the country's leading digital and direct marketing agencies. He is also the author of two very successful cookbooks, both of which have been lavished with praise and awards.

If you have not yet discovered The Alice APP I highly suggest it. Either for yourself (take a trip down the Rabbit Hole of your childhood) or a gift for a young person in your life. At the end of the App you can learn about each art piece - see where it came from and learn about its history. I can't wait to share this form of Alice in Wonderland with our God daughter - who is 9 years old.

The Alice in Wonderland APP is available for Iphone/Ipad and Android devices

Watch the video above to get a glimpse of the fabulous art and animation.

I invite you to learn more about this fabulous new adventure for Alice by following along with
The Alice App on Facebook and Twitter or visit The Alice App website.

Growing up, were you a fan of Alice in Wonderland? Have you tried The Alice App?

With Gratitude and Peace,

Angels of Abundance

Doreen Virtue’s books on the angelic realm have been a great resource for me since I started my journey of connecting with my angels in 2008. I was recently given the opportunity through Hay House Publishing to review Doreen’s newest book Angels of Abundance , which she co-authored with her son Grant Virtue.
As with most of Doreen's books - this one came to me at a time that I needed to be reminded that I'm not alone on my journey – that my angels are there to help and guide me, I just need to call them (and allow myself to receive their response).

When I have reviewed books for Hay House in the past I received a hard cover book. This time it arrived in the form of an e-book. Can you say the angels were signalling that I was in need of many reminders ASAP.  As I clicked my way through the pages I was reminded not to give up, to keep working hard towards my dreams and most important to pay attention to the signs that the angels give in response to my requests. 

In this book Doreen and Grant provide answers to questions about creating affirmations and how long one needs to do affirmations. Interesting - about a week after reading this book I was asked if I would be interested in conducting a workshop about affirmations. Not only was the workshop's theme perfect - it (workshops) was something that I have been hoping to branch my business in healing into. There really are no coincidences - and if you are reading this review, there is a reason why this book - Angels of Abundance - is being brought to your attention.

This book is an easy read, wonderfully inspiring and informative for anyone who is seeking a quick read on how to manifest an abundant life. And a wonderful reminder for anyone who needs a little nudge from the universe that asking is only part of the manifesting process - action and faith are also required.

Angels of Abundance - Heaven's 11 Messages to Help You Manifest Support, Supply, and Every Form of Abundance reminds us that we already hold all the power and resources needed to fulfill our life's purpose, we only need to allow ourselves to see what is revealed to us.

Have you read Angels of Abundance? If you are looking to get your own copy or a gift for someone it is available through Hay House Publishing.

FTC Disclosure: I received an e-book of Angels of Abundance for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.

With Love and Gratitude,
