Cinderella | Marcia Brown
Pickpick

This book was great (1954). I had read this story at young age and always enjoyed imagining having this happen to me in my life.
The illustrations within this book are unique. They almost look unfinished at points. Some lines are not connected and the color is not fully opaque.
“Cinderella was delighted. What was the name of this princess?“
I like this quote because at this point in the book, Cinderella knows that they are talking about her.

This traditional book is a wonder tale that encounters full on magical abilities and hopes we girls all wish to have in life. Although her life was rough, it portrays hope of life out there we have yet to explore!

classic story with its own variant to it. A story kids always tend to love when fantasying about what a fairytale is entitled of!

I enjoyed the pictures of her in the different dresses the fairy godmother made! They looked different than the ones from the movies and the other books about this story!

This Caldecott award winner was a similar yet unique twist on the tale of Cinderella we all love! The pictures were very sketch like which was something unique to the story as well! The ending was different which was something that I enjoyed because it made the book less easy to predict!

“Touching Cinderella‘s rags with her wand, she changed them into a costume still more magnificent than any she had worn before.”

Even though the illustrations won a Caldecott, I think they could be more expressive and detailed.

This particular adaptation of the classic fairy tale Cinderella is a translation of Perrault‘s tale, a French retelling. Cinderella is a classic princess and this can be fun for kids to explore the story through new cultural lenses.

I love the story of Cinderella! However, this book is for older children because it's a longer book.

This book was published in 1954. This book draws the readers in by stating "Once upon a time..." because children love stories that being with that statement. This story is well-known too which allows readers to stay intrigued. The illustrations use sketches and watercolor throughout the book.

A fairy tale that dealt with a princess who was treated poorly by her evil step-mother and two ugly step-sisters. The good in a person is why charms those around you and leaves an impression even when you may not know someone so well or at all. Cinderella is a sweet and beautiful girl who just wants to a happy ending. Award: Caldecott Medal; Published: 1954; Illustrator: Marcia Brown

Cinderella was one of my favorite fairytales growing up. Cinderella is treated poorly by her family but soon gets what she deserves. This can give children a sense of hope.

This was the typical Cinderella story, I think that typically the story of Cinderella is looked at as a princess story but I would love to find a unique way to teach a lesson about it.

This follows the traditional tale of Cinderella perfectly. The plot is simple and direct. The language and speech of characters is lively and engaging, especially of the evil stepsisters.

I grew up reading this story and I will absolutely read it to my children one day. Cinderella is as good as she is beautiful. Despite all the despair she endured, she remained true to herself and her values.

It was copyrighted in 1954 and published by Charles Scribner‘s Sons. This is a story I grew up with as a little girl. The words paint a vivid image of beauty, magic, love, and imagination. It is a simple story about how a wonderful girl who is treated poorly soon receives all the love and recognition she deserves from her trusted godmother and her Prince Charming. The images are profound yet very simple. Absolutely beautiful.

I really like how close this book was to the beloved story of the original Cinderella. The pictures were simple but colorful. This is a long story with some difficult words so I think that this would be more beneficial to a read aloud in order to prepare students for longer reading and chapter books. I liked how the step-sisters ended up liking and respecting Cinderella at the end too.

TRADITIONAL LITERATURE
Rating 3/5.

This translated text, originally by E Perrault, is a Caldecott Award Winner and a cherished TL book in my house hold. Since being translated this story has been retold in many forms. The unique illustrations are beautifully done and Brown‘s retelling in just breathtaking. I just loved this version of the book. #LAE3414sp19

This makes me laugh because someone they are treating so poorly they are actually thinking of so highly in a different setting! It also amazes me that cinderella continues to be so kind to them after they hurt her continuously.

This part is interesting to me because in other books and movies of Cinderella, the step sisters are filled with anger and annoyance that their sister would be a princess! This is definitely a different twist that I enjoyed!

Published in 1954. This book is a classic in which the author kept the language engaging and definitely kept the oral tradition. However, there were a few changes to the story I noticed from what I knew as a child. For instance, there were two balls for cinderella and the step sisters showed kindness towards cinderella once they saw she was the beautiful princess. These differences kept me more engaged because the story was slightly different.
