Advent day 14: Read The Nutcracker

George Bailey went to visit the manger today.

We read a wonderfully vivid version of the Nutcracker story  with just the right mixed of scary and danger and bravery and magic and dreams and childishness.

The story was told by E.T.A. Hoffmann.

The illustrations are very engaging with little ones peppered though out the pages and lots of full page pictures depicting some of the more dramatic sections.
 We love it.
