    One thought on “The Nutcracker Ballet”

    1. This gorgeously illustrated book tells the story of the Nutcracker ballet in a magical and kid friendly way. Children will delight in hearing how Clara’s godfather presents her with a magical nutcracker who saves her from the mouse king and then whisks her off to his kingdom in the land of sweets where he transforms into a prince. Parents will hear the music to the ballet ringing in their heads as they read and enjoy the pictures with their children.

    2. As the name suggests, this adaptation of the nutcracker follows the ballet rather than the original story. The text is not really anything special, but I loved the intricacies of Vagin's illustrations.

    3. This was a fun one this Christmas. First we watched the ballet, then the girls danced to the music themselves, then we read the book (that probably should have been first), then Santa brought them their own Nutcrackers for Christmas.

    4. Another one with gorgeous illustrations! It was another favorite of mine, actually :) We borrowed several versions from the library so we could know the story before going to see the performance.

    5. I think I've read this book every year at Christmastime since I got it in 2002. It's delightful, and full of energy and imagination. It's perfect for Christmas Eve. Read again 12/24/15

    6. Read for Composer/Musical study to little sisters and brother, they loved the outline of the story, and the pictures especially.
