Cinderella #254 Super Why! Cinderella Sticker Stories (With Over 74 Stickers!)


Cinderella #254 Super Why! Cinderella Sticker Stories (With Over 74 Stickers!)
"Hi Cinderella. We're the Super Readers!"
said Super Why. (Grosset & Dunlap,2009)
Once upon a time, there were some Readers who were really Super! Their names were "Alpha Pig with Alphabet Power, Wonder Red With Word Power, Princess Presto with Spelling Power, and Super Why with Power to Read!"  They were all trying to help their friend, Red Riding Hood, with a big problem. She was invited to a princess party, but she doesn't have "princess-y things". The Readers agreed that this was a problem, and then did what they always did when they needed advice. They chanted their magical chant, and "a book floated down from the bookshelf. The title was Cinderella." That's how they got the idea to jump right into the book. "Super-Readers, to the rescue!" the four sang out while they zoomed in. First, Princess Presto uses her Spelling Wand to spell d-r-e-s-s, and a lovely one appears for Cinderella. Then, when the clock strikes twelve, something even better happens. Instead of having to G-O, Super Why helps Cinderella spell S-T-A-Y! 
From Super Why! Cinderella Sticker Stories (2009) Grossett & Dunlap
Notes: I think this story is funny and practical; I like the background message of do your own thing and don't let anyone tell you that you can't do something. At least not until you have had the chance to try it. In any case, if you like stickers, especially Cinderella stickers, you will love this book.
