We feel like dancing

It’s almost Christmas – yes it is and we feel like dancing.

As The Nutcracker opens at the Sydney Opera House tomorrow night we thought our delightful picture book Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy was worth mentioning.

The Nutcracker is a much loved ballet by Tchiakovsky. It is traditionally performed at Christmas time – the giant Christmas Tree which is usually on the stage certainly portrays a Christmas theme.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy is a favourite part of the ballet for most children. Sue Whiting and Sarah Davis have created a stunning picture book based on the music from The Nutcracker. It includes a CD narrated by Antonia Kidman with the well known music playing in the background.

We recommend it. Go on – go out and buy it from your friendly bookseller.
You can dance your way through the festive season with toddler in tow.
