Cinderella Stories

Photo

Many cultures have a version of our Cinderella story.  All these stories have something in common, mainly that a young girl is seen as worthless by someone in her life.  This young girl somehow finds that she is worthy of the 'prince', whom all the other young girls want to marry.

Read some of the following stories and think about how they are similar, and how they are different.  What are the stories trying to tell you?  What do they tell you about the culture behind the story?

And many more...

There has been much written about Cinderella stories and they can be found in many different cultures and over many generations. Here is very interesting and thorough resource which was recommended to us by a library youth group. Thanks so much for your input. Keep on reading!
