I so wanted to love this book. I had heard many friends enthuse about The Polar Express, knew it had won awards, and have a soft spot myself for illustrated fantasy books for children. But this particular one I found to be a little disappointing. Yes, it has magical elements. In a way it is remini...

The text reads sweetly and to a p...

My general opinion of Chris Van Allsburg is that his books are made to appeal to adults, not children. None of his books has ever been a favorite of my children. This book is a perfect example. The overall story has potential--a Christmas Eve train that takes Santa-believing children to the North...

The Story: 3,5 stars The Narration: 5 stars “Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me as it does for all who truly believe.” Like the magical train ride, The Polar Express is a magical story, one that readers and listeners will want to enjoy again and again. It's a excellent book for a...
