To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a wonderful book for teaching the familiar unit of "Cinderella Around the World." I read it to my class and they loved it. This book also provides wondeful cultural references about Latin American culture, especially Mexican culture. I am Mexican and I felt that it was authentic. Additionally it has some Spanish phrases you can teach children or at least introduce the concept. The illustrations are also beautiful.
I collect cinderella books and use a enn diagram from Mailbox magazine to compare the new versions to the original. Our school adopted mexico as our multicultural focus and this book worked wonderfully.
A fantastic Mexican version of Cinderella. What's great, too, if you don't know Spanish, is that these rarely sprinkled words and phrases used in the narrative can be skipped since the English appositive comes right after. Even if your listener (I read to children) isn't familiar with the English Cinderella, this will still delight them with its characters and suspense. The illustrations are large, colorful, and simple. I'm sure the reader/listener will cheer at the end of the reading. Differing from one reviewer, I DO think this is one of dePaola's best stories.
