Celebrate the season with an innovative Advent calendar, story book set, and tree-trimming keepsake.
Wonderfully illustrated and brimming with holiday spirit, this unique advent calendar features 24 jewel-like miniature board books to help children count down to Christmas. Each day from December 1st through Christmas Eve, open a book, just like the peek-a-boo window on an Advent calendar, and then hang it on the Christmas tree by its gold thread loop. Read in sequence, the books tell the beloved story of the Nutcracker, from a first glimpse of the Stahlbaum house, to the duel between the Nutcracker and the Mouse King, to the magical Sugar Plum Fairy. A treasured keepsake to reuse year after year.
