All About Alice

All About Alice by Penny Dale (Walker, 1999) is a charmingly observed day in the life of a preschooler. Some of the things which Alice likes to do include playing school, helping with the dishes, and of course reading:

With the help of Jacqui and Sarah on Facebook, we identified Can’t You Sleep, Little Bear? and We’re Going On A Bear Hunt and Starting School and The Mousehole Cat and a Maisy book (but which?) and The Shepherd Boy and Oi! Get Off Our Train. Do you recognise any of the others?
