The Berenstain Bears and the Nutcracker (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
Brother and Sister Bear and their little sister, Honey, get a nutcracker for Christmas, and when they quickly tire of their other gifts and their parents suggest they use their imaginations instead, they are inspired to act out the ballet.
Jan Berenstain is best known for her books featuring the Berenstain Bears, a family of humorous bears that she created in collaboration with her husband, Stan. The couple met as students at the Philadelphia College of Art and began writing children's books when they were unable to find enough funny books to satisfy their son. The duo has made many contributions to the Beginner Books series, which was created by Dr. Seuss in an effort to help children learn to read by using humor and a controlled vocabulary.
