Jouanah: A Hmong Cinderella takes readers to the remote mountains of Southeast Asia, to the traditional home of the Laotian Hmong. All essential Cinderella elements are here—startling transformation, a kind-hearted but mistreated central character, and an evil stepfamily. Jouanah from Shen's Books, an imprint of Lee & Low Books, includes a short passage for students to practice comprehension and summarization after reading Jouanah or for teachers to introduce the book. Additional pages include vocabulary words and comprehension questions.
