The Nutcracker Ballet

     December is here and I'm so excited.  I've always wanted to go see the Nutcracker Ballet, but somehow Christmas season gets so busy I never actually make plans to go see it.  This year my family and I are really going.

     I've been reading "The Nutcracker" by Susan Jeffers to my daughter so she will know what it is all about.  I like this picture book because it is simple enough for a 4 year old.  She has begged me to read it over and over again.  Now my daughter is entranced with nutcrackers and sugar plum fairies.

  1. Oh, that is adorable that she's entranced with nutcrackers and sugarplum fairies - such a dream!

    I've never seen it but I'd love to; especially now I live in London! No excuse, really. x
