    It is too traditional It s hard for a child who are born and raised in North America to understand the old fashioned life style.

    EPIC FAIL DO NOT BUY OFFENSIVE BOOK This book is an insult to Persian culture, full of stereotypes and they aren t even the right stereotypes I bought it and my American husband stopped reading it after three pages because he was so offended buy it If you want better Persian stories the Shahnameh stories are far less sexist, full of authentic strong female heroines Find a good translation of Ferdowsi.At the time of this review, there are 22 reviews including mine and two one star reviews I took a closer look and both one star reviews are the only ones written by Persians So essentially 100% of Persians HATED this book It s a complete hack job.Dear white people, not all of the Middle East has the same past and culture Some were progressive than others This book, is incredibly sexist and backwards even for the time it supposedly take place in Do not read this to your daughters Persian women are not and were NEVER known in the Middle East for subservience.The book is full of sexism, weak women, strong uncaring men Setareh s father honored the women s quarters with a visit Setareh seldom saw her father for he was busy in the world of men The prince pays her a compliment and she responds you honor me Pffft, Persian women throughout history have played a large role in their kingdoms and households If anything the stereotype is and was that Persian women are notorious for making men work hard to please them hence the Taj Mahal.The whole book reads like an ignorant white person s view of what is Persian.Women and men in Persia intermingled much than suggested, and women were much powerful and involved with state affairs.Also the illustrations look Turkish than Persian and the lead looks like a white girl with black hair, her clothing is also lacking in authenticity.

    I love the story It s a little bit different than the Cinderella stories most of us are familiar with, but satisfying I m a bit of a fairy tale snob, and I love this interpretation The illustrations are top notch just beautiful I m a big proponent of art for children, and, in fact, my own five children would often choose an edition of a favorite folk or fairy tale based largely on the artwork My youngest son works for the local art museum though we live in a relatively small city, our art museum is highly respected I m not especially enad with the quality of the binding of my new, supposedly library bound edition, but the contents of the book I highly recommend.

    I like this book, but some of the vocabulary is a little difficult, even for the teacher.

    In this Persian variant of a Cinderella story, Shirley Climo has used language which invokes the flowery language of the Middle East without the wordiness Robert Florczak s illustrations show both the simplicity and complexity of Persian art An excellent pairing of author and illustrator to present a different version of a favorite folk tale.
