Book Blurbs: Cinderella’s Magical Wheelchair

In a Kingdom far, far away lives Cinderella. As expected, she slaves away for her cranky sisters and step-mother. She would dearly love to attend the Royal costume ball and meet the Prince, but her family is totally dead set against it. In fact, they have gone so far as to trash her wheelchair! An unexpected magical endowment to her wheelchair begins a truly enchanted evening and a dance with the Prince. Can true love be far behind?

What Do You Use to Help Your Body?

Maggie and Momma love going for walks. During every outing, Maggie learns about something new. Today’s no different! Momma has arranged for Maggie to meet lots of people in her neighborhood. They all have different jobs. They all come from different cultures. They all use different things to help their bodies. Maggie doesn’t just stop to chit-chat. Rather, she gets to the bottom of things. By asking the right question, she discovers how many people with disabilities use aids to help them out.

  1. I know my niece would love this, Cinderella in a wheelchair is the perfect character to show her that not all princesses are cut from the same mold-at least on the outside. Thank you for the chance to win! edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom

  2. To dream is magical!
    This book sounds wonderful, and it shows the value of every person, and the similarities of girls to want to be princesses!

    I would enjoy reading it, as well as my niece’s little girl….we could read it together, here in the snowbelt of Ohio, covered by a cozy quilt…with time to dream and giggle, with our princess imaginations!

  3. Now that I think about it, I’m surprised nobody else has thought of adapting fairy tales this way. This would be great for me to share with the Lifeskills students I work with.

  4. I think it’s wonderful that you want to rewrite the Classics and put in physical disabilities. Brilliant and why no one else thought to do it is unbelievable. I’ve just come from your web site. Love it. Love that your cane is your accessory and the design is awesome. My daughter is 24 now with disability and it would have been great to read these type of stories for that whole year she was hospitalized. I think it’s important for everyone to know we are ALL the same. You are as beautiful inside as outside Jewel. I’ve enjoyd reading about your books.

  5. Author Jewel Kats has captured my interest, I
    have to use a wheelchair sometimes and I can see where this would give a new pathway in the mind.

  6. She never quit on herself which is a great thing. This shows there is no such thing as a perfect person. We all have our flaws. Nobody should ever think different about someone who is in a wheelchair or disabled in some way. I’m against that.

  7. What a neat twist to a story that my children already love. I can imagine it has a wonderful lesson in it as well 🙂

  8. I love to read inspiring stories to my little one. We’re trying to find more stories about accepting differences, and this sounds like a good one.

  9. My children could relate to this story. Their aunt is in a wheelchair.

  10. It is so refreshing to see something like this. Fairy tales are for everyone! Finally an author who knows that no matter what your challenges might be, anyone can still be a princess 🙂

  11. Fantastic! I’m always on the lookout for books showing children with disabilities to read to my children and the children in my classroom.
