The world wide Cinderella story resonates for many reasons. In countries as diverse as Canada, Ireland, Zimbabwe and India little miss dressed-in-rags gets the short end of the stick from her step mother. And in every place where her story appears, our gal gets the goods in the end! Score one for the underdog, Cinderella!
Here's the story of a small girl who shivered with cold. Once upon a time, a wee lassie named Sophie put on her fairy dress and sparkly shoes. She wore them right to preschool, because she so loved to pretend that she was a princess. Alas, the season had changed and summer ended. Sophie shivered in her fairy dress, and her poor little feet had raised marks from the shoes. So, she did what all sensible children do in the post-home era. She went to her cubby, dug out a comfy pair of sweat pants and fluffy pink socks, and changed clothes. "These will keep my wegs warm!" she declared. And a catcphrase was begun! You go girl!
