Poor Cinderella is made to sweep, cook and clean, and yet she always shows kindness to her mean stepsisters. This storybook boasts sparkles and spells, heroes and villains, and a triumphant happy ending.
It's never too early to introduce children to the magic and wonder of fairy tales. Classic characters are brought to life at each turn of the page with spellbinding artwork and lyrical writing. A visual glossary at the beginning introduces new vocabulary and promotes understanding. A lively activity at the end invites discussion and will make even the very youngest children want to return to these story books again and again. In this story, young readers can select their own fabulous outfits for the ball from the pages of a catalogue, just like Cinderella's step-sisters did!
Fairy tales are a vital introduction to the basics of storytelling like setting, characters and plot. They boost a child's imagination and also teach valuable life lessons about good overcoming evil, the difference between right and wrong and the importance of rising to a challenge.
