Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella is a multicultural and international book. According to this version of Cinderella by Paul Fleischman, "There lived a girl who worked all day in the rice fields . . . cooked in the royal kitchen . . . tended the cattle . . . then spent the night by the hearth, sleeping among the cinders." Fleischman has combined many versions of this fairy tale into one globe-spanning tale that helps readers learn about various cultures. This book would be great for elementary school children who want to learn about other cultures.

This is an interesting adaptation of Cinderella. Through each page, you learn a little bit of how the Cinderella tale is different in each culture. You learn that in different parts of the world they use glass slippers, diamond anklets, or sandals of gold as key parts of Cinderella’s transformation for the the ball.

Great book for all ages. The illustrations are beautiful. Great for teaching folktales and the differences in different parts of the world. ( )

This is the story of Cinderella with a cultural twist on it. Each page has different illustrations representing a different culture with different wording that can relate to that culture. Cinderella is born to a stepmother who makes her do various chores but eventually marries a prince.
