First of all, do you have any idea how many people have the same size foot? Billions. Trying to find your true love based on her foot size is just preposterous. Although, as a kid, I thought his was a great idea! This fairy tale gives new light to fairy tales. It allows young girls to see that no matter where you come from or how bad life is, there is always a bright light waiting for you ahead. This book not only gives the readers something to look forward to because they want Cinderella to hav ...more

Setting, Characters, and Plot: Walt Disney’s version of Cinderella is what most people believe to be the original version of this fairytale. The story’s setting is a far away European Kingdom. There lived Ella (Cinderella), a beautiful, golden-haired, blue-eyed girl who lived with her devoted father who gave her everything her heart desired. Her father was wife-less and felt that Ella needed a mother. So, he married again and chose a wife who had two daughters, Anastasia and Drizella. The father ...more

I chose to read Cinderella because it was a favorite of mine as a kid. It was so interesting to go back and read a classic like this now as an adult. I still think this is a great story for children. It is quite obviously a fairy tale fiction, but it is a great read. It is magical, with the animals and fairy god mother. It is also hopeful, and teaches a lesson that if you don't give up, a bad situation can turn itself around and have a happy ending. I enjoyed reading it again. I think it's nice ...more

Cinderella to me is a lot like Snow White. However, Cinderella is more classy and girly than Snow White is. For starters, Cinderella starts out with an evil step mother and she has two evil step sisters. Cinderella has to cook and clean and never gets to do anything fun. Eventually her fairy god mother shows up and Cinderella is granted with a beautiful dress, a carriage, and she gets to go to the ball but she has to be back before midnight. A lot of movies have come out with a spin or relation ...more

I absolutely love Cinderella; she will forever be my favorite princess. I could easily read this book over and over again and not get tired of the story. The plot line puts you in a situation where you can understand Cinderella’s difficult life and how she gets through it because of how strong her character is. I would definitely recommend reading this book or even showing the movie to your daughters or younger girls. I know when I was a younger girl, picking a favorite princess was a big deal, ...more

Cinderella was one of my favorite stories growing up. It is still my favorite princess Disney movie. The book has great pictures. It is a great book for any age child.


Cinderella would be great in the dramatic play area of a classroom. Children love playing house. Having books like Cinderella in the dramatic play area gives the children something to base their plays on.
Jessie Jang
Cinderella was one of the first fairy tales that I read. I thought it was a wonderful story. I liked how the story had different animals in the book. Also that there is such a thing as true love. Also that you should forgive and forget.


I would talk about that dreams do come true if they believe. Also what the children dreams are and also never give up on their dream.
Chanita Zimmerman
This is a classic. I love the story line and the illatrations. Every teacher should have a copy of this book.



I would use this story to discuss the different make ups of families. Cinderella Lived with her step mom and step sisters. alll families are different and I will use the story as an example. i think this is a great book to show the difference of families.

Walt Disney’s Story of Cinderella is a about the most beloved princess of them all. Cinderella’s story is rather tragic in the beginning and ends up turning out to be great and has a happy ending. It is an awful story about Cinderella being tortured and put to work, essentially being a slave, by her stepmother and stepsisters. But in the end Cinderella’s fairy godmother helps her to go to the ball which starts the good in the story, she eventually meets her Prince Charming and is no longer a sla ...more

We have all heard of Cinderella. Cinderella is in many different cultures and is told in many different ways but the way i rememember is the traditional Cinderella story by Walt Disney. The pictures are very detailed and imaginative. The story has great imagination to it. Cinderalla is the typical fairy tale story with the happily ever after ending. Although there isn't really a strong lesson or moral to the story it is still entertaining and fun to read. A moral of the story might be that no on ...more

This is a book that I grew up with. This fairy tale is a classic. This book can be used in the dramatic play center. As a teacher I would put out princess dresses and prince clothes so the children will be able to re-tell the story and use thier imagination and creativity.
