Cinderella Ate My Daughter

Peggy Orenstein wished she had a boy, because boys have more colors than girls: red, blue, black, and green. It seemed like girls only had pink. How do I know this? I read her book when my mom was napping. I was curious about the title. Why is it Cinderella Ate My Daughter? Maybe because Cinderella has pink and she’s saying Cinderella took over my daughter with pink. I read it even though I’m not allowed to read it.

    oh, i think reading that book is a fine idea because we need to HEAR what kids think about cinderella, about colors, instead of just guessing.

    Oh kiddo,

    The best books you’re ever going to read are the ones you’re “not allowed to.” If I ever get my kids’ book published I’m going to send a copy for you to review!

    (In about four years you need to read Reviving Ophelia: it’s not going to make it any better, but at least you’ll know what’s going on.)

    Keep up the reading and the writing!

      I don’t like pink. I only like one princess, Jasmine, because she travels around the world. I also like Thumbelina because she is so little and has a lot of great adventures.
