Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine is the book that started my love of reading. I didn’t read much growing up. I worked harder NOT reading the books assigned in high school English than to just read the books. In college I studied Early Childhood Education and took a children’s literature class. Ella Enchated was the first book I was assigned to read in the class. I LOVED IT!! I’ve been in love with children’s books ever since.
Ella Enchanted is a re-telling of Cinderella. I like how Ella doesn’t fall in love with the prince right away. They meet when they’re young and have a wonderful friendship for a few years. It’s very different from the movie made in 2004. Fun movie, but VERY different from the book.
