A bit cliché

When my dad came to the hospital after I gave birth, he gave me a beautifully illustrated Alice in Wonderland book. My mom gave us the Disney version. And now, I decided that it would be interesting to have a small collection of Alice in Wonderland books. Yeah yeah, totally cliché when your baby girl is named Alice but what can I say!

This colorful board book by Jennifer Adams will soon find its way to Alice's library!

And if you know any cool Alice in Wonderland books (vintage or new), please, let me know.

* * * * *

little gray pixel: I enjoy Rockabye Baby. It is just that I imagine, I don't know, Thom Yorke (Radiohead) saying "What the fuck have they done to my music!!!". Anyway, I was mostly looking for day time music...I love to dance with Alice :)

hello milky: Thank you so much for the information. I should also get a Bob Dyland record for Alice. Good idea!

linda: Wow, she is so freakin cool. I must ABSOLUTELY order her CD.

anne: I have this CD (Un dimanche à Kyoto) from the library and it is pretty nice. The vocabulary is very rich (maybe a bit too much) but Alice enjoys it. Everything else was very boring with a lot of pipi-caca vocabulary. I will let you know if I find something.

sid: I did a little research and watched one of his video. It is super fun. This is exactly what I was trying to say : non-condescending!

last day of may: Another record I must find : Jackson 5. I'm so happy to know that I'm not the only one doing daily "baby dance party". xox

shannah: This is a sign! With a name like that it must be good for Alice and I (ah ah ah)! We will get that CD for sure.

gillian: The Beatles are so awesome for babies. I was very happy to get a few records from my dad. I just hope that Alice won't break them too soon. Wow, so many people enjoy Elizabeth Mitchell. How come I didn't know her? Thank you for the other suggestions.

taryn: I will take a look at Putumayo Kids. And I'm curious...a Quebec CD?!?

gimbo: There are so many good indie-folk artists that are totally fine for kids. Well, more the music than the words but whatever ;)

Daytime music! Well, in that case, we play everything we like for Alexa. Beatles, Bowie, The Strokes. I just put my iPod on random and let it rip.
