Cinderella - Bedtime stories for kids in English

One day

Due to work reasons, Cinderella's father had to leave on a long journey


And that was the time when Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters turned her life into a living hell

While Cinderella was in the garden talking to her very beloved birds

Her stepmother approached her

As of today you will live in the attic.

You will do all the housework. Also, I don't want you walking around in these clothes.

Cinderella didn't know what to say. Helplessly, she did what she was told

She packed her stuff and moved to the attic

After that days Cinderella began to do all the housework all on her own

She used to get very tired, but neither her stepmother or her stepsisters felt sorry for her

Wipe the floor again. Can't you see it's still dusty. You haven't done the laundry. I have nothing proper to wear

Cinderella had no friends other than the mice and the birds that used to come to her window

Due to the cold, secretly at nighttime

Cinderella would go downstairs to the chimney and warm up near the dying fire and fall asleep

As the days went on by, one day in the town an announcement was made by the kingdom

Our prince will be holding a ball at the castle all the girls who are eligible for marriage are Invited to this ball

As soon as the stepsisters heard about this invitation there ran home and told their mother

You will be the most beautiful girls at the ball. The prince must pick one of you

That way we will all live in the palace right mother.

We must get some gowns and shoes for you girls

Move along we're going shopping

The stepmother and stepsisters left the house hearing all that was talked about with a sad face

Cinderella stood there and watched

The preparations went on for days. Both the stepsisters had their gowns sewn

Every day that would go in front of the mirror and tell themselves. We will be the most beautiful girls in the ball

Finally the big day had arrived. The stepsisters had woken up very early that morning and so they called Cinderella

Cinderella, Cinderella

Come here. Where have you been? Hurry and prepare our baths?

All day Cinderella helped her stepsisters get ready

Hey brush it gently, you are going to pull it out.

Towards the evening, they had finished all their preparations for the ball

You look beautiful girls. Just beautiful.

Cinderella built up all her courage

and asked her stepmother

Can I come to the ball too, please?

Who you?

Yes, well, it's said that all the young girls can come

Is this your dress for the ball?

The prince is looking for a wife not for a maid my dear

Come on girls

Let's not be late for the ball and you make sure that you've finished all the chores before you go to bed

Her stepmother and her stepsisters made their way to the castle

And all on her own at home, Cinderella began to cry


My god I go to the castle too, if my parents were here none of this would have happened

Right at that moment a very bright light appeared

At first Cinderella did not understand what it was. She was staring at the light and suddenly

a beautiful fairy appeared in the middle of the light

My beautiful Cinderella, don't cry. You too will go to the ball at the castle

Cinderella could not believe her eyes. She asked in shock. Can I go? Just look at me..

Do not worry. I'm here to help you. Now bring me a pumpkin and

Seven mice

Cinderella could not understand why she wanted these things. But still she did as she was told

First she went to the kitchen and grabbed a big pumpkin

Then she went to the attic, got home mice friends and went down again

With her magic wand the fairy turned the pumpkin into a beautiful horse carriage

Then she turned to the mice

One of them turned into the driver and the other six of them turned into beautiful white horses

Amazed as she was

Cinderella was looking at the horse carriage

The fairy turned to her. When she touched her with the magic wand

Cinderella's all dress turned into a beautiful ball gown

And the slippers on her feet turned into beautiful glass shoes

I look like a princess

Now it is time to go to the ball, but don't forget. You must be home when the clock strikes 12:00

Because by then everything will turn back to what they were

Cinderella, listen to the fairy very carefully

then she hopped on her carriage and

Started to ride towards the castle

Her mesmerizing carriage stopped in front of the castle

When Cinderella entered through the grand doors to the ballroom, all the eyes were on her

She looked so beautiful and elegant

Her stepmother and even her stepsisters could not stop looking at this beautiful lady

They of course could not recognize her

Suddenly the prince appeared on the stairs

Cinderella really stood out amongst all the young women at the ball

The Prince fell in love with the first sight of this beautiful young woman

With everyone watching curiously, he began walking down the stairs and slowly

approached her

The stepsisters were very excited because the prince was coming towards them.

Ah, he's coming to me.. Noo he's coming to me!

But the Prince passed on by and

stopped in front of Cinderella

Most beautiful young lady. Would you please allow this dance to me?

Cinderella nodded politely

The prince and Cinderella began to dance amongst the curious looks of all the invitees

Cinderella was so captivated by the music and the dance

She felt like as if she and the prince were the only ones in the ballroom

They dance nonstop all night long

Of course Cinderella could not feel how time had past

At some point the big clock caught her eye

It was almost midnight

Right at that moment

Cinderella remembered the fairies warning

You must be home when the clock strikes 12:00. Because by then everything will turn back to what they were

With a panic, Cinderella began to run and left the prince behind

When she was running down the stairs of the castle

She dropped one of her shoes

but she did not even have time to go back and collect it. When she ran further, the clock struck midnight and

everything turned back to what they were before

When the prince went out after her, he spotted her shoe on the stairs

Find the owner of this shoe. Even if you have to get all the girls in the kingdom to try it. Just find her!

Cinderella came home breathless and went straight up to the attic.

She started thinking about the night she had with the prince

She knew she had no chance, but still she had fallen in love with him

It was almost impossible for the prince to find her and even if he did he would never recognize her

The prince's men went door-to-door to every house in the kingdom

and looked for the young girl who owned this shoe

But the shoe did not fit any of these girls

In the end the prince's men came by Cinderella's house

Cinderella was very happy to see the king's carriage in front of the house

Right when she was about to leave her room

her stepmother appeared at the door

And where do you think you are going? You want to try the shoe, too?

With a sarcastic laugh, the stepmother locked the door to the attic

No, please stop, open the door please..

How pathetic.. What would the prince have in common with you?

The men first let the old skinny sister try the shoe, but it was too small for her feet

Look how beautifully it fit my foot?

Then the younger chubby sister tried the shoe. But a chubby foot did not even get in the shoe

Maybe if we had tried it on my other foot

Whatever they did it just would not work

Finally Cinderella's last try was to run to the window, but it was too high

So she began crying

Seeing her crying, her mice friends came next to her. My stepmom locked me in

She must have the key

One of the mice slipped underneath the door and ran downstairs. The stepmother was at the door with the prince's men

Ehm.. Why don't you come tomorrow today? They're a little tired their feet must be swollen

The mouse jumped on the stepmothers skirt and snatching the keys out of her pocket, ran upstairs

He slipped the keys under the door

Cinderella was very happy when she saw the key

Opening the door she ran down as fast as she could

How... How did you get out?!

Please stop, don't go! I want to try the shoe, too

The stepmother and her two daughters started to laugh hysterically

Please sush.. It is the prince's orders that every girl in the kingdom must try the shoe

When Cinderella tried the shoe on, everybody was in shock. Because it fitted her perfectly

Young lady, are you the owner of this shoe?

Cinderella nodded to confirm.

Please come to the palace with us

Cinderella went to the castle with the prince's men. And they took her in front of the prince

Right when he looked in her eyes the prince knew it was her who danced with him that night

He held her hands, I finally found you my princess

Would you marry me?

With teary eyes from happiness, she accepted the prince's offer

They got married and lived happily ever after
