    I read this aloud to my four year old, who loved it so much we finished it in two sittings in the space of the same day It s not my favorite of the Nutcracker books out there, but it was perfect for introducing the ballet to a preschooler I m sure we ll be reading others and watching the actual ballet on video very soon
