This is a cheerful re-imagination

A quick uplifting story, with an encouraging change to Cinderella’s choices and freedom.

Well-narrated if you listen on at least 1.2 if not faster. The normal speed is painfully slow.

I received a free copy of this book.

It would not be something I’d want to use an entire credit on just because it is so very short (though just right for a bedtime story), but it is sure worth $3-5 for a Cinderella collector or wheelchair ability tale. I wish the author was still around to make this into at least a novella.

not enough story

I think it's important to have disabled characters in children's media but this book didn't have enough story.

I got this audiobook via a promo code and this is my voluntary review.

A fantastic book that demonstrates that being disabled need not prevent you from dreaming! I always try to include diversity in the stories I share with my neices and nephews to make them productive socially conscious grown ups someday. I would suggest using this book as a teaching tool to assist young children grasp the idea that those who are physically challenged share the same emotions and capacities as those who are physically able. I paired it with the ebook, Good images and language that is simple to read. The kids all had a lovely afternoon drawing alternately abled disney princesses in pretty dresses. My nephew felt much better about his new hearing aids after we read this story.

Barbara Rich did a brilliant job narrating.
