I Recommend: Belinda and the Glass Slipper

We made a fun library-book-discovery this week.

BELINDA AND THE GLASS SLIPPER is a delightful twist on the Cinderella story.

I've read it at least once a day since we brought it home. Even my son stopped to listen when I was reading it aloud to the younger girls and he laughed in all the right places.

My favorite part is this one:  

Lola smiled sweetly at Belinda and said, "I really want this part, and I always get what I want. Plus, I have perfect, tiny feet -- just right for Cinderella."

"Belinda had perfect feet, too, but they happened to be huge.

As a fellow large-footed person, I was rooting right away for Belinda!

This is one book that when my kids say, "Read it again!" I say, "Okay!" without any hesitation.

Any book recommendations for me? What are you reading?  


  1. That sounds great, and what a cute idea! I'm reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children right now, and really enjoying it.

  2. Aw, this sounds too sweet! Thanks for sharing it.

  3. Cute! I'm reading WONDER by RJ Palacio and it is wonderful ...

  4. I love retellings! Definitely adding this to my list. :)

    And *happy sigh*, isn't it great when you find one you don't mind re-reading endlessly? :D

  5. Oh, how I miss the age of reading those types of books to my little ones. (They're not so little anymore, but we still read together.)

  6. My new favorite children's book is I Love You Stinky Face. We've been reading it every night for the past couple of weeks! Belinda and the Glass Slipper sounds adorable!

  7. Aw, how sweet! I can't wait until my niece is old enough and I can read all those fun books with her. :)

  8. LOL! That looks like an awesome book! And look at Belinda's feet! They're skis! :D <3
