it was amazing
bookshelves: childrens

There are some similarities between this version and the traditional western version, however I think the cultural elements that were added makes this story so much richer. I also think this would be a great resource when covering a unit on China or in a lesson that looks at the similarities and differences between different versions of Cinderella. I think it's great that different cultures have taken a traditional tale like Cinderella and added there own touch to it. It makes the story so much better when you can read it and see familiar elements from your culture infused into the story.
