Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's beloved ballet The Nutcracker is all about magic and movement, and that is precisely the point of this adaptation for prereaders. On each page, Alison Oliver presents cheerful and colorful images of scenes from the story (most with kids in the starring roles), alongside captions—soldiers marching, mice prancing, snowflakes swirling, dolls bending, and buffoons skipping—as a way to introduce basic movement terms to babies and toddlers.
