Bedtime Stories: Cinderella Needs Carriage Insurance
Classic fairy tales seem to resonate with every successive generation. The concepts, themes and lessons taught are timeless. But, children are always looking to change things a bit and create their own world with their unique imagination.
This version of Cinderella illustrates that clearly, because as the father reads the story to his little girl at bedtime, she interrupts with no-so-subtle changes to the story … maybe even making it better. It seems the father gets caught up in the creativity, injecting his own tweaks to the story that address his fatherly concern for safety and preparedness.
