The world-wide Cinderella story, Montessori education, and connections with archetypal imagery are explored in this blog. It strives to promote a love of reading, especially of fairy tales.

Cinderella, Cinderella, night and day it's Cinderella. Except at school. The fairy tale is becoming an endangered species!

Cinderella #365 Five Original Versus by Rachel Hope Crossman
Cinderella, dressed in yella’,
Went upstairs to kiss her fella.
Made a mistake, kissed a snake...
How many doctors did it take?
Cinderella dressed in red,
Got right up and out of bed,
Cooked for the King, dropped her ring,
Hoped he'd find her magic bling.
Cinderella dressed in blue,
Ran away and lost a shoe,
Despite her sisters’ cruel laughter,
She’s the girl the Prince ran after.
Cinderella dressed in green,
Went upstairs to meet the Queen,
She curtsied, bowed, sang acapella:
Your Majesty, I’m Cinderella!
Cinderella dressed in white,
Invited to the ball that night,
One candied quince from that sweet prince—
They’ve been an item ever since.
Cinderella dressed in gold,
Kissed by the Prince, who was so bold,
They got married, they grew old.
Now my story is all told.
