Once Upon a World: Cinderella by Chloe Perkins- ESSENTIAL

Perkins, Chloe. Once Upon a World: Cinderella, BOARD BOOK. Little Simon, 2016. $8.99. This is the retelling of Cinderella, but with the setting in Mexico. There aren’t any Spanish words or direct references to the setting, it’s the illustrations that provide the reference for where the story is taking place. I loved it. A lot. What a fresh way to brighten up a fairy tale. It introduces younger readers to a place that they may have never seen or heard of before and it is done beautifully well. The pictures are vibrant and interesting. This is a fabulous representation of another culture and inclusivity. PRE-K, K-3- ESSENTIAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
