Toads and Diamonds | Charlotte S. Huck

“On the day of her wedding to the prince, as Renée spoke her marriage vows, better jewels nor flowers fell from her lips, for now she had no longer needed them.”

Traditional. This is essentially a different version of the classic Cinderella tale, making the story perfect for young children. It‘s silly but still has a message and is easy to follow and engage a classroom of children.

Pickpick

Toads and Diamonds, retold by Charlotte Huck and illustrated by Anita Lobel, 1996. This story is very much a Cinderella story but with a twist. The story incorporates the connection to animals in a way that eventually connects her to the old woman. This story has a lesson to be learned about being kind to all will have its rewards and the illustrations accompanying the tale help the reader visualize it very well.

I liked how this particular illustration showed a montage of Renee doing chores

Mehso-so

This book was a retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella. What I enjoyed about the book was the changing of names. Cinderellas name was Renee, and the fairy godmother was an old woman instead. I think this made the story different enough that it would be interesting for kids

So this is the first #ThisOrThat where I want it all! 😬 I will have ice cream and popsicle at a beachside pool, nibbling on watermelon 🍉 and strawberries 🍓 while listening to an audiobook and reading along in the print book 😊💙 #Greedy #ManicMonday (And I love to travel but I am an introvert so I‘m a homebody at heart ❤️)

RebelReader I have so many on my TBR bookshelf, but like you I always want more! I have a long hold list at the library too and those must be read first since there are other book lovers waiting for them. I guess having an abundance of reading material is more a blessing than a curse! 2y
