Central Mexico and northern Mexico belong to North America according to the geographer’s classification system. Southern Mexico gets categorized as:
• Central America, geographically;
• Latin America, linguistically;
• Mesoamerica, traditionally.
The entire country is a popular business, get-away, and research destination precisely because of its diverse cultural geography.
So it may come as no surprise that Mexican culture lends itself nicely to North America’s most popular, profitable children’s story, Cinderella, while injecting distinctly Central, Latin, and Middle American elements. Cinderella-like stories occupy beloved places within Mexico’s regional folklore and literature, for insights into:
• cultural values;
• family life;
• traditional behavior;
• universal truths.
“Adelita: A Mexican Cinderella Story” packages all of the above into a delightful, educational, uplifting ensemble.
