One day cinderellas father died, and she was left to the will of her step mother and evil step sisters. They basically made her their maid, and didn't let her go to the ball to find the prince. Her fairly god mother showed up the night of the ball and granted all her wishes, but only till midnight. ( )

This story is a timeless classic. One that will catch the attention of children. It has a great storyline some children can relate and it has a great moral to the story. ( )

In my opinion, this book is wonderful. One reason I enjoyed this book is because of the integration of people and animals as characters. In the story, Cinderella, who is human is friends with the birds and the mice helps her get to the ball. The integration of humans and animals as friends teaches a lesson in the story that you can find friends in unlikely places. In real life, you cannot be friends with a bird, but he author’s integration of people and humans as friends elucidates the idea to be open minded when it comes to choosing friends.
Another reason why I liked the Cinderella story is the development of the character. In the beginning of the story, she was timid and followed the rules of her stepmother. As she realized she had support from her fairy godmother, she began to gain self confidence. At the end of the story, against her stepmother’s rule, Cinderella still tried on the glass slipper. As a future teacher, I may be the fairy godmother in someone’s life. I may be the only one to encourage them and support them. This is something I have to keep in mind. On the outside, Cinderella was beautiful. You could not guess that her family members treated her like she was inadequate. I have to treat all of my students with respect, because like Cinderella, they may mask what is happening in their life.
The big idea in Cinderella is that being evil does not make you successful. the wicked stepsisters were mean to Cinderella throughout the whole story. Cinderella was nice to them, even when they did not reciprocate the action. In the end, the Prince noticed that Cinderella was nice, and she was the one to marry the Prince. This story teaches readers that being nice does not go unnoticed. ( )

This is an all time classic about a little girl who's father gets married and then dies. She then has to stay with her stepmother who makes her cook and clean. She is not allowed to go to the ball unless she has a dress so she makes one with the help of the house mice. Then her step-sisters tear up her dress. She is saved by her fairy god-mother who zips her wand and Cinderella has a new dress. She goes to the ball and meets the prince and they eventually live happily ever after.

Personal Reaction
I have always loved this story as a child. I love how it has been remade with so many different twist and plots. In the end they all usually end with the house maid (Cinderella) ending p with the prince.

Classroom summary
1.Have the children place dress up with different costumes.
2.Have the children create a story of what Cinderella and the Prince do after they marry. Do they have kids? Move away? Etc...? ( )

Cinderella is about a girl who is forced to live with her evil step mother after her fathers passing. The evil step mother and he children treat Cinderella very poorly, one day they all get invited to a ball where she is told she cannot attend, She starting crying and her fairly god mother creates her a dress and a pumpkin carriage and rides off to the ball where she falls in love with the prince. She gets home before midnight but not without loosing her slipper, the prince the sets off to find her and when she flits the slipper then end up happily ever after. I personally really like this books, Its one traditional literature that hasnt been changed a whole lot. The story line is okay, but an extension could be that once they are happy together, the step mother and her sisters appologive for being so mean.
