Cute Retelling of "Cinderella" with Penguins
26 March 2000 | by wjblackSee all my reviews

Carefully crafted by Canadian animators to be language neutral (i.e. no words are used at all, and credits are in both English and French), this is a very cute retelling of the Cinderella story with penguins playing all characters. Perfect for penguin lovers (like me) and active kids with short attention spans (it doesn't dawdle). Its short length and language neutrality may also make it ideal for ESL or multilingual classroom environments.
