Must Read Monday {Cindy Ellen}

Hello, Friends!

I hope that you all have had a GREAT Monday.  Today, I am linking up with the sweet Amanda from Teaching Maddeness for her Must Read Monday linky.

Last week, we started our fairy tale genre.  One of our standards is to compare and contrast different versions of stories like Cinderella stories.  Our favorite book to read was Cindy Ellen: A Wild Western Cinderella story.  I LOVE this story because I get to pull out my strong Southern accent.  I was born and raised in South Carolina and have a pretty strong accent.  With this book, I get to let it shine.  

They love the story and love that it takes place in the South.  They even stopped me to say that they knew what the words mean in the story.  By words they mean like 'gettin' hitched' and 'yonder'.  LOVE it!  You better believe that we were experts on comparing and contrasting different Cinderella stories lasts week.  They are always amazed at how many versions there are.  

What's your favorite version of Cinderella?  Leave me a comment below.  I'd love to see which books I need to check out.

Lots of love,


  1. I enjoy "Sidney Rella". It's funny because the main character is a boy who plays football.

    1. I have not heard of that one. Gonna have to check that one out. Thanks for sharing! :-)
