And Then the Prince Knelt Down and Tried to Put the Glass Slipper on Cinderella’s Foot

Judith Viorst

How the Cinderella Story probably actually happened.

I really didn’t notice that he had a funny nose.

And he certainly looked better all dressed up in fancy clothes.

He’s not nearly as attractive as he seemed the other night.

So I think I’ll just pretend that this glass slipper feels too tight.

This is one of the poems we have read as a class now that April has brought us National Poetry Month. My kids loved this different perspective on the Cinderella story, and it always makes me laugh!
