Cinderella is a Positive Role Model

Cinderella is a Positive Role Model

As the horse came close to Mia she could see behind the horse there was a pumpkin carriage.  And inside the carriage was a beautiful princess with a long blue silk dress, white gloves and glass slippers that looked like crystals!

“She must be a princess!” thought Mia.

The girl in the crystal slippers invited Mia to get into the carriage and ride with her to the ball.

Mia said, “But I have nothing to wear to the ball.”

“Whatever do you mean? You are gorgeous!”

When Mia looked down she could see that she had the most wonderful white dress with pearls and diamonds that shined so brightly when the light was on her. It was so bright that around Mia was a sparkling rainbow. And on her feet were some ruby red slippers!

All the animals stopped and bowed when Mia went by.

Mia was so excited! She loved to dance. And she had never been a ball before.

As they rode to the ball Mia the beautiful princess told Mia of her dream to be away from her evil step-mother and to live happily ever after with a charming prince.

When they arrived at the ball, the beautiful girl got out of one side of the pumpkin and Mia got out of the other side.

Mia ran around the pumpkin to go into the ball only to discover that she was back in her home!

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
