Retelling of Cinderella in through many cultures: from Mexico, Iraq, Korea, Zimbabwe, etc...each culture has a representation of their own "glass slipper" for example: glass slippers (France), lentils thrown in ashes (Germany)—share space with strikingly different ones: Godfather Snake (India), a breadfruit coach (the West Indies).

Awesome multicultural twist on a classic story. This book tells the story of Cinderella through the eyes of many different countries. Great way to teach students how alike and different the many cultures of the world are. I would definitely recommend using this book in the classroom. ( )

I loved this worldwide version of one of my favorite fairy tales. Even though it tells the same story as the classic Cinderella, it puts a twist on it through exposing cultures from around the world. Through the illustrations, you can see different people and how they look according to different areas of the world. It was a wonderful book. ( )

Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal is an amazing book that mixes up multiculturalism with a classic fairy tale. This book retells the story of Cinderella, however the author alternates between different cultures and writes each new sentence according to which culture he switches to. He seamlessly took various parts of the story between different cultures to create one cohesive story. Along the way, there were parts that he emphasized notable differences using (...) (Ex: When the shoe was revealed, the author wrote and drew three variations: glass slippers, diamond anklets, and sandals of gold. That way children can choose what drawing they want to interpret as their idea of Cinderella. It was eye opening to me how each of the cultures presented in this book had such similarities to one another yet had a completely different image of Cinderella at the same time. A good follow up activity for this book is to let children pick which culture's version of Cinderella they found most interesting and have them research the rest of the story online. Children can also write their own take on Cinderella or at least a snippet of the story to alter. ( )

It's the story of Cinderella as we know it.....and yet how we do not know it. This story is common in all cultures and Fleischman's rendition weaves all of them into one story. It's really quite unique.
