Adorable Alice by Cassandra Webb

New Frontier Publishing, 2014. ISBN 9781921928017.
Adorable Alice is a beautiful picture book highly recommended for children aged 3+. Whether reading it with an adult or trying on their own, children will wonder at Alice, a young girl who explores her house by using her different senses. A great book to support learning the days of the week, who is in a family and our different sense and how we use them.
The pictures are detailed and colourful and I like how the author doesn't explain Alice's reasons for acting like she is. This means there are a lot of chances for discussion and interpretation.
