Book Review: Disney Before the Story: Cinderella Takes the Stage

Disney Before the Story: Cinderella Takes the Stage

About the Book

Before Cinderella dropped her glass slipper . . . she was a girl ready to create!

Ella, or Cinderella, as her parents fondly call her, is getting ready for a puppet-show contest when she meets an unexpected friend, Val. Val doesn't have much, but she teaches Ella how to sew. In return, Ella shares her sewing materials with Val. On the big day, the girls both put on great shows. But who will win the grand prize?

Newly independent readers ages 5-8 will love this new illustrated chapter book based on Disney's Cinderella. This Before the Story chapter book brings the childhood of one of Disney's most iconic characters to life in a tale of creativity, unlikely friendships, and being true to yourself.

My Take on the Book
If your kids love the movie Cinderella, they will love reading this fun book that lets them learn more about Cinderella when she was their age. The book gives a glimpse into the girl she was before you see her as a maiden in the movie, but also about some of the things that makes Cinderella who she is. The book introduces you to Cinderella's friends and also has a great message that is shared about friendship and more!
