The Irish Cinderlad (Trophy Picture Books)

The Irish Cinderlad - Shirley Climo, Loretta Krupinski 5/1/11 ** Getting ready to do a unit on Cinderella with my 4th graders. One of the things that I appreciate about Shirley Climo's retellings is that she cites her historical sources at the end of the book. I appreciated this Cinderella variant because it has such different motifs - a bull's tail, several trials that the Cinderella character has to go through, the gender difference.
