NUTCRACKER NIGHT follows a little girl and her family as they're off to experience an exciting Christmas event. They are on their way to see the famous Nutcracker play and she's so excited. There's always magic surrounding the Nutcracker ballet, but not many people think of the sounds go along with it.

The illustrations are stunning and the text is very easy to read. Instead of talking about the ballet like most books do, NUTCRACKER NIGHT focuses on the different sounds you'll hear there. While I like the unique take on this traditional play, it did take away from the magic we usually see with the dancers. Some of the sounds feel a bit odd to say and that brings a bit of humor into it. I do like the family feel to this book, especially when she kisses her dad's cheek.

Final Verdict: NUTCRACKER NIGHT is a cute book full of holiday tradition that I would recommend to younger children who are still learning sounds and for those looking for a simple read.
