The Nutcracker ballet is a holiday tradition for many families across the country and one of the most iconic productions is the New York City Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. Produced in partnership between Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing and New York City Ballet, that acclaimed production is reimagined as a magical new picture book, The Nutcracker (out today;11/15/16).
Aspiring ballerinas will discover fun facts about New York City Ballet’s production, such as the weight of Mother Ginger’s skirt and the number of jingle bells on theCandy Cane costumes.
This book is perfect for readers who might be looking for a gift for generations to enjoy together. We don't do the holidays, but we do have a fairly regular tradition of attending a local production of The Nutcracker whenever we can. I know my girls and I will cherish this book for years to come. Until next time...
