Christmas Reading - The Polar Express

I was talking with a friend the other night who's daughter is celebrating her first Chrsitmas this year and mentioned that he will have to get a copy of one of my favorite Christmas season books to read to her. That book being The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. Perenially on December bestseller lists, this story of a young boy's train voyage to the North Pole, Santa and the meaning of Christmas features Caledecott Award winning illustrations and is one of those rare, happy times that both story and art are simply a perfect match for each other. If you have only seen the movie or never read The Polar Express please do so as this title is sure to please young and those young at heart alike. Consider it our holiday treat for all of you!
