Cinderella, Hallmark Movies and Finding a Good Man

I walked into the living room the other day, and my husband was watching the end of a Hallmark movie. “What are you watching?” “I am watching a movie about a woman who is in love with a prince.” Ever since American politics has grown ugly, we sometimes sit and watch Hallmark movies, but this? At least it was the end of the movie, and the next one I watched with him.

I thought then of the book Cinderella. Every child in America must have been given

One of the best fairy tales.
Everyone should read these stories as a child.

I've watched its animated series as well. The way Cinderella's mother pronounces her name has always cracked me up.

Cinderella is a book written by the Walt Disney Company about a young lady repressed by her stepmother and stepsisters. Throughout the story, her stepmother kept her from having a life similar to the other girls her age.

Cinderella, the main character, is made to do not only her own work, but the work of her stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizilla. Their mother favors the two sisters over her stepdaughter and gives them all they desire. The fairy godmother is a sweet looking older lady who comes to

"The chapters were each a little story. The first one was kinda sad because the step mom and step sisters gave her all the chores they had to do. In the next chapter Cinderella and the Prince got married and kissed on the lips. In the third chapter the mice got lost because the maid swept them away when they were by the fireplace. The gardener scooped them into cages. The Prince and Cinderella were riding on a horse and saw the gardener letting the mice go in the field. The 4th chapter was about ...more

It's great that the Cinderella movie is put into a book form. It will influence children to read more and spend less time watching television.

Nice work. 👌

The stepmother and stepsisters do everything to keep her busy and treat her like a maid. Cinderella ends up going to the ball with the prince and becomes the prin ...more

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

This version of Cinderella by Walt Disney's Company is Cinderella in one of its simplest forms. Cinderella is forced to care for her stepsisters and step mother following the death of her parents. The Prince of the kingdom invites all the maidens of the kingdom to his ball, where he will choose a wife. Unfortunately they do not let Cinderella join them, and they destroy her dress. Before the end of the ball, Cinderella's fairy god mother fixed her appearance with a new dress, coach, coachman, fo ...more

I have always loved this book. It has a magical twist and the fate of Cinderella comes out as a happily ever after. I believe that this book is one of the most popular especially with little girls. This story combines attitudes, love, family, and respect. It's a book that I would highly recommend. I loved this book because of the illustrations that represent the whole story. I love how Cinderella is so sweet, friendly, and caring. Those traits are magical to find in one person and Cinderella acc ...more

This book was really well done. I really enjoyed it. It goes through the whole movie and doesn't leave huge details out. The pictures are all amazing and look like the movie. The only thing that could have made it better was if there were more details and more parts of the movie in the story. Not everything from the movie was included and I think the author left out some of the parts that should have remained in the story. Overall though the book was very good and definitely a good read for fans ...more
