    1. Probably actually one of my favorite versions of the Cinderella story. Instead of losing a shoe and having the prince go looking for her, Abadeha actually has to save the prince; the test is that the woman who can get the enchanted ring off his finger is the one he will marry. The illustrations are great, too, and I really like the cultural setting.


    2. "Abadeha" tells a story similar to the one we know under the title "Cindirella" but it takes place in the Philippines. For some, it might not be obvious to consider this a multicultural read. I believe that if it is present right, it has a wealth of multicultural lessons to be learned. I wouldn't recommend using this book with early elementary students as it isn't as gentle as we would expect. I believe it can be a good read for middle school students. As a teacher, if I would choose to use this [...]


    3. This is a tale of a young girl named Abadeha who grew up in the Phillapines. The story has beautiful pictures that seemed authentic to the Phillapino culture, along with different customs (such as sleeping on the floor) that represent phillapinos as well. The story focuses a lot on her loss of her mother and the pain she is feeling, which never really gets discussed in great detail in the traditional Cinderella. Instead of fairies, there are "spirits" who help to make Abadeha's life slightly mor [...]


    4. Abadeha is a Filipino Cinderella story written by Myrna J. de la Paz. Manila born Paz grew up in a town where indigenous culture and spiritual beliefs were practiced right along with Christianity. Perhaps this exposure to tradition motivated her to write such a culturally rich tale. In the author’s notes, Myrna J. de la Paz explains how her story is a reconstruction of the Cinderella story from traditional Philippine folklore. The original folk literature disappeared after years of Spanish col [...]


    5. Instead of a fairy godmother, ,we get the Spirit of the Forest. We also have Abadeha (Cinderella) praying to the Creator of the Earth and the Spirits of her ancestors.From the Western Cinderella tradition, strangest change is probably the tree that grows treasure.Instead of hosting a ball, the prince finds the treasure tree and takes a ring off of it. However, it gets stuck on his finger. A dream tells him of a girl who can remove the ring. His father decrees he will marry that girl.So, Abadeha [...]


    6. This is another cultural tale of Cinderella. The major similarity between this book, the other books and our traditional tale is the hard work Adadeha (Cinderella) has to do, all at hands of a stepmother. The fairy godmother is her dead mother in heaven sending treasures and dreams instead of wishes. The prince looks for a woman that can remove a ring that is stuck on his finger, not a glass slipper. He finds Adadeha and they live happily ever after.


    7. De La Paz shoehorns the Cinderella story into a Philippines setting. It sort of works, but I think a better story would have been to showcase an actual legend of the Philippines if the author wanted to bring more cultural awareness about the country to others.



    8. A great version of the classic Cinderella story. Abadeha, through all of the sadness, finds happiness in the end.


    9. This is another multicultural Cinderella book I bought with money donated by an Esperanza board member for our Esperanza library. These multicultural books are so wonderful!


    10. I wish this was easier, but the vocabulary is so difficult. Maybe once students are familiar with the classic Cinderella story, they will be able to manage this story despite all the hard words.


    11. I'm a Filipino and it's frustrating that I can't find a copy of this book in the local bookstore here in the Philippinesez. :(
