Classic Christmas Book
The Polar Express is a classic story for all ages. It reminds us of the importance of believing in the majic of Christmas, when the world wants to take it away. The artwork is exceptional. This is a must have book for yourself or as a gift to a friend, child, or grandchild.

The illustrations are beautiful and add to the dream like story. Its every kids dream to go to the North Pole and meet Santa himself. The ending where the boy wants a bell from the reindeer's harness is very touching. Only the children who beleive in the magical world can hear the tingling sound. The boys parents can't hear the bell's enchanting music. The boy too comments on how the bell started to fade on him too until it was only a memory. The looking back and remembering the wonders of christmas makes it a great books for adults too.
