The Nutcracker Comes to America


The Nutcracker Comes to America
by Chris Barton
Illustrated by Cathy Gendron
Millbrook Press, 2015. Nonfiction.

Find out the true story of the three talented brothers who introduced the Nutcracker Ballet here in America--eventually helping it to become a favorite ballet. The Christensen brothers were dancers who were born and raised in Utah. Without them, this traditional Russian ballet would never have been known here in America. Nor would it have be the popular holiday tradition that it is today. This would be the perfect book to read before attending the Nutcracker Ballet this Christmas season.
