Her stories: African American folktales, fairy tales, and true tales

Students discuss the illustration's allusion to the myth, Pandora's Box. Students locate instances of folk sayings or expressions that make these tales seem authentic to the reader. Students draw a Venn diagram comparing Catskinella and another folktale that represents a version of the Cinderella theme, such as Mufaro's Beautiful Daughter by John Steptoe.
