Book Review:

Everyone knows the story of Cinderella, but did you ever think of what it was like from the step-mother’s point of view? Now you can! This hilarious book offers a different side to the story than the one we usually hear. This book is great for teaching perspective taking, in terms of both literarily and socially! Read this wacky book to your kids and help them understand that there’s more than one side to every story.


If you like this book, you’ll probably like Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten!: The Story of Little Red Riding Hood as Told by the Wolf and Believe Me, Goldilocks Rocks!: The Story of the Three Bears as Told by Baby Bear. 

This is a list of other versions of Cinderella to use as a comparison!
