                This book was a go to every Christmas (and often in between) for me growing up and I'm so excited to share my copy with my daughter (arriving in February!)


                The illustrations are absolutely stunning, and the story is so fun as a child to imagine.

                  My father read this to my brother and I every Christmas Eve. Van Allsburg's beautiful illustrations are as quiet and powerful as is the message of the power of belief. There is magic in this story and its pictures! I would recommend treasuring this classic Christmas story and stay far away from the film adaptation, as I have done.  Everything you need for a beautiful storytelling is here in The Polar Express, sure to create lovely wintertime memories for you and yours.

                    The beautiful illustrations and straight forward story-telling invoke the magic of Christmas time. While reading the book to my child, I vividly recall the mysterious and exciting feelings of my childhood at this time of year. Stories of this sort foster a child's limitless imagination and hope for what is possible.
