Where in the world are my slippers?

Looking at Cinderella stories from around the world.

Today, I had the privilege to teach your child! We explored the story of Cinderella in the land of Egypt. I have provided you with additional resources to elaborate and further explore this traditional fantasy. There are many cultural variations of the story of Cinderella. I hope that you enjoy them!


Sincerely,

Miss Sansom
