This is the traditional Cinderella that most of us grew up knowing. Cinderella is a girl who lives with her evil step mom and is forced to clean and do everything for her family. This is until she gets the chance to go to a ball where she meets the prince and then looses her glass slipper while trying to flee. The prince then searches until he finds her and makes her his princess. This is a very female-based story and follows the tradition fairytale storyline. This story carries a fairly easy plot that many kids can follow but you may lose the interest of some of the class that are not interested in princess stories. If I were to use this in the classroom I would use it to have students talk about their least favorite chore or something they’ve lost and if they got it back. I would try to stay away from the “lovey dovey” aspects of it. The illustrations in this book are great- of course. Disney always outdoes themselves when connecting movies and books. ( )

This book is a traditional trade book. A story told by many books in many different ways but still manage to be the same story. This particular story involves Cinderella and her evil stepsisters. Cinderella wanted to go to the ball and her animal friends made her a dress. Her mean stepsisters ripped her dress apart so she couldn’t go. Of course, Cinderella fairy godmother comes into the picture and fixes everything. Cinderella goes, dances with the prince, loses her slipper, and is reunited with the slipper when she tries it on. When she tried it on, she proved that she was the one in fact meant for the prince. This book is good for a LEA approach. Students know this book well which makes it a perfect book. The illustrations of this book are very detailed. They help tell the story. ( )

In my opinion this book truly displays the main character and allows readers to see her struggles. Cinderella is made to do not only her own work, but the work of her stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizilla. This book teaches children not to be neglected and to take a stand for themselves. I also like that it is obvious the setting of the story is mostly in Cinderella's home and the Kings castle in Germany. I think this book is definitely geared towards girls but it is a great read for them. It's a classic and one that most little kids know. ( )

This Little golden book tells the original version of the classic fairy tale Cinderella. The preface of Cinderella is that a young girl is forced to live with her horrible stepmother and stepsisters after a traumatic accident left her with no one else. While cooking and cleaning she hears that there will be a ball held and every woman in the kingdom shall attend. With help from her animal friends, fairy god mother, and a bit of hope, Cinderella makes it to the ball. Stressed for time she looses her slipper but the king searches the kingdom to find her and they live happily ever after. This story would not have much educational use. I believe that this book could put false hopes into children's minds, which can lead to disappointment.The illustrations are taken from the classic Walt Disney film. I would consider this book a little problematic because it is not realistic. ( )

"Cinderella" is a well known story about a step-daughter who is treated unfairly after her father dies. There is a ball at the castle and Cinderella is told by her step mother that she can only go if she finishes her chores, and many are given to her. The night of the ball arrives and Cinderellas animal friends and fairy god mother help to get her there. That night she loses a shoe and the prince sets out to find the princess who fits the missing shoe. In the end he finds Cinderella and they live happily ever after. This simple fairy tale that has a very detailed illustration throughout the book, opens up a broad spectrum of topics to talk to students about in a classroom. Some topics that come to mind are responsibility, determination, lending a helping hand, and how life may not be fair sometimes but good things do come. A teacher may want to teach a lesson about lending a helping hand, and after reading the book discuss with the students how they can help one another throughout the day, then in-turn have all of the students lend a helping hand with one another throughout the rest of the day.
