Read Right Now! The Christmas Nutcracker

The Christmas Nutcracker Storynory
Listen and follow along to The Christmas Nutcracker - The classic story with music by Tchaikovsky from his famous ballet. Clara and Fritz have a very special godfather who makes inventions out of clockwork (or perhaps they are magical) and his Christmas presents are always amazing and wonderful. This year he gives them something rather small and simple – a nutcracker-doll in the form of a soldier. It’s rather ugly, and soon it is broken, but Clara loves it all the same. And then it comes to life and proves himself to be a true hero.More Read Right Now! Books for Christmas
