Once, long ago, there was a village by the shores of Lake Ontario.

Summary: (from my library catalog) This version of the Cinderella story, in which a young girl overcomes the wickedness of her stepsister and stepmother to become the bride of a prince, is based on ancient Chinese manuscripts written 1000 years before the earliest European version.

Resources/Activities: Find more versions, of this tale and others. Compare and contrast what you like, or don’t like, about each one.
