The Nutcracker is one of my favorite Holiday Traditions. Every year I find a new way to bring this classic story into my life. This three books are wonderful for Nutcracker fans of all ages.
I had no idea Whoopi Goldberg had written a series about young ballerinas of color! The characters in this book are so authentic and each girl has fun character traits that make them real to the reader. A quick but satisfying read.
The illustrations in this book are so lovely! It definitely has the potential to be a yearly tradition. Tallulah is excited to get a role in her studio's Nutcracker. Her confidence however is shaken by the crowds and makes a minor error that leaves her despondent.
However the company rallies around Tallulah to make her feel better.
Al of these books would make stellar gifts ! I hope you check them out.
