storytelling alice?   I have had in downloaded ever since I read the book The Last Lecture when it first came out.  My girls didn't seem interested.  Last night it came to mind and I mentioned it and the girls acted like they never heard of it, UGH!  So, I showed them (again) and they are so excited to use it!  They haven't even dressed for the day because they don't want to waste any time getting schoolwork done so there will be more time for Alice.  Little do they know, it is schoolwork!  Love it when that happens.  ;o)

For anyone that doesn't know, Storytelling Alice is a free download (originally created to get girls interested in computers) at alice.org

I haven't seen this before--it looks like a great resource.  I was looking for computer programming stuff to use with my daughter a few years ago, and didn't find this.  I'll definitely have to check this out.  Thanks for posting it!
