The tale of Cinderella spans time and place. While many readers are probably familiar with Walt Disney's version of the story as told through film, there are as many different versions of Cinderella as there are cultures and times. Popular culture is, unfortunately, perhaps more aware of different versions of Cinderella movies (think Ever After, A Cinderella Story, Into the Woods, etc.) than they are of different versions of Cinderella books. We've created this ultimate list of the best Cinderella books for kids to include Cinderella adaptations from a host of cultures as well as fractured fairy tales of this beloved tale from the modern era. Some Cinderella stories enchant with their stunning illustrations as in the version by Kinuko Y. Craft. Other Cinderella adaptations nudge open the door to understanding another culture, like "Adelita: A Mexican Cinderella Story". Still other Cinderella fractured fairy tales, such as "Seriously, Cinderella is SO Annoying!: The Story of Cinderella as Told by the Wicked Stepmother," remind us to see things from other perspectives. This list includes books to appeal to readers ages 0 to 10 and beyond, from board to picture to chapter books. Board books are best for the littlest readers ages 0 to 3. Picture books are intriguing for all ages, but geared towards ages 2 to 6. Chapter books are generally for readers ages 6 to 12 and will include middle-grade fairy tale retellings such as "Ella Enchanted". Without further ado, dig in and enjoy this collection of Cinderella stories sure to make your heart sing! Are there other books you think we should consider including? Tell us!
