I really enjoyed this story. Folktales help us to see the good and evil in the world, and in this story among others, how kindness wins. This book would be a wonderful addition to any fairy tale/folktale unit in a classroom and children of all ages would enjoy reading it. I had seen the cover of this book on shelves before, but hadn't picked it up to read until recently. I was missing out and I very much enjoyed reading it with my children, and will read it with my students as well. This could be a great mentor text for writing fairy tales/folktales as well. The illustrations are beautiful and it would be a great book to compare to other versions of a Cinderella type tale from around the world.… (lisätietoja)
