This book was cute however just another Cinderella story but translated in Spanish. The illustration however caught my attention and was intriguing as it was simple but eye catching. The translations between English and Spanish were spot on and accurate. I think if children want a Spanish version of this famous fairy tale than I say this is the book to read. Growing up, I remember listening to this story in both languages and thought it was cool to hear both versions of the story!

The story of Cinderella is considered a fairy tale. This book in particular was interesting because it was bilingual, written in not only English, but also in Spanish. I think students in second through fifth grade could read and enjoy this book.

This story is about Cinderlla, who, after her father died, was forced to live and work for her step-mother and step-sisters. Her step-mother forced her to do all of the chores in the house and to dress in rags. There was to be a ball in the kingdom so th

This is a fine retelling of Perrault, and the pictures, while not stellar, are engaging. However, as a bilingual book, I don't think it's fabulous. It's of course very long to be read in both languages in one sitting; the main problem, though, is that Cinderella is still obviously European (and not Spanish or otherwise Mediterranean), and it doesn't highlight or celebrate Latino culture in any meaningful way.

Who does not know the classic story of Cinderella. I chose this version for my class, because it is a multicultral book. The story is told in both Spanish and English and a book that may benefit bilingual students.

They did not mention what happen to the father. But other than that it was a lovely read.
