Buy Cinderella of the Nile 

It was wonderful to see Cinderella of the Nile included in a list of ’10 picture books that promote empathy’ by the awesome children’s blogger Mamma Filz. She posted the list to celebrate Empathy Day, an annual day created by Empathy Lab UK which aims to acknowledge the ways we can use books to help children build empathy skills. On the list of books selected for the Read for Empathy Guide was Tiny Owl’s very own The Parrot and the Merchant.  Read Mamma Filz’s review of Cinderella of the Nile below:

Tiny Owl publishers have announced a new series of picture books, One Story, Many Voices which the book Cinderella of the Nile is part of. Many children are familiar with the story of Cinderella and indeed Walt Disney and Grimm’s Fairy Tales have introduced many of us around the world to it with their version of Cinderella but what about a version that includes a Greek girl who is sold into slavery? Beverley Naidoo opens up your eyes to a different culture and it’s poetic retelling will have readers engaged and intrigued. Combined with Marjan Vafaeian’s illustrations this is a book that will have many readers exploring a range of feelings and introduce them to the red haired, blue eyed Rhodopis. I would recommend this picture book for children aged 7 years and up.
