Interstellar Cinderella

Interstellar Cinderella - Deborah Underwood, Meg Hunt

I had so much fun reading this text, and I know that young readers will, too! This text takes the classic story of Cinderella and tosses it into outer space - literally! Although there are several elements that are very similar to the original, Underwood adds her own spin and leaves the reader with a plot twist ending. I have found so many activities to accompany this story. Students could construct their own spaceship to integrate this text into a steam lesson, write about an imaginary planet, or make a text to text connection with The Rough-Face Girl. Students could also recreate and act out the story!
