We fell in love with the Cozy Classics board books from brothers Jack and Holman Wang, in which they interpret a literary novel in a dozen miniature scenes with irresistible needle-felted characters, each captioned with a single word. In their version of The Nutcracker, young Marie is given a gift, and dreams that her nutcracker must fight the mouse king. Then he and Marie go to a land of sweets, where she finds he is a prince. Prereaders can improve their command of language while absorbing the essence of the tale, and the book is so clever, we imagine you won't mind sharing it over and over—perhaps with some embellishments of your own.
