Buy Cinderella of the Nile
Cinderella of the Nile by Beverley Naidoo, illustrated by Marjan Vafaeian is based on one of the earliest-known recorded versions of the famous Cinderella tale. Elements of this ‘Egyptian Cinderella’ legend were first written down more than 2000 years ago by the Greek historian Strabo and, before him, Herodotus. Many children will be familiar with Walt Disney’s animated film Cinderella, or even the popular version from Grimm’s Fairy Tales, but have they heard of the tale from Egypt? Our cross-curricular resource explores the ‘Cinderella of the Nile’ with activities on history, art, PSHE, drama and more!
