Reviews

"The story...is accompanied by charming, humorous illustrations, creating a work that gently encourages children to expand their dreams beyond traditional gender and socioeconomic roles. A note to readers at the end of the story offers suggestions on how caregivers can foster a child's interest in STEM subjects."--Foreword Reviews

"It's nice to see the Cinderella tale being retold in a way that informs girls that it's fine if they aren't interested in stereotypical feminine things....The illustrations are lovely and very colorful with plenty of detail to draw children back to the book again and again.... This is a wonderful addition for people who agree with the book's overall message, but don't have a clue as to where to put ideas into practice."--Portland Book Review

"We are seeing a huge shift in picture books that promote strong female protagonists who don t need a prince or anyone else to come and save them. We have strong willed girls who are perfectly capable of determining their own destiny and that is what we have in Cinderstella."--The Petite Stag

"It's so important to tell our girls stories that aren't tales of princes and princesses living happily ever after. It's important for them to dream of careers, especially those in the STEM fields. This book is not preachy, but it does contain some additional resources for parents at the end on how to encourage girls into STEM pursuits, or at least how not to discourage it. This book is truly a Cinderella story for the next generation. Cinderstella is a girl after my own heart."--Mom's Radius

"Cinderstella dreams big and steps outside gender specific pursuits. Refreshing. Her interest in science, technology and becoming an astronaut, should be encouraged in young children of either gender who show an interest. Valeria Docampo's colorful, lively and dreamy illustrations capture the wonder of what happens when you have a big dream."--Children's Books Heal
