Alice is a kid at heart (or, a grownup with a heart for kids). Her love of music and literature has prepared her well for narrating children’s books. Using a literature-heavy curriculum as a home educator meant many hours of filling her children's minds and hearts with great stories. Reading to her children when they were young was a daily treat, and included many trips to their local library, where the staff knows their family by sight. Alice calls a Chicago suburb home, where she lives with her math genius hubby, her son and daughter (when they are not at college) and a menagerie of pets.
