Christmas Tradition in our family.

Many years ago my sister and I listened to this story. every year while putting up our Christmas tree. Now we each play the story in our own homes and our children are doing the same. It always brings back wonderful memories and feelings!

Story AND Tchaïkovski's Music!

Wonderful introduction to both the classic story (abridged) and the classic music (for the ballet). This was exactly what I was looking for - music and story.

My only complaint is that the sound quality is not great. Sounds like an older production. But still worth getting!

Wonderful

My only complaint is that the narrator is a bit quite especially when the music starts up, other then that I could make her out perfectly
