It's a classic! Great story, beautiful illustrations. It's a fantastic book to read every year.
This is one of the best Christmas stories. The beautiful illustrations compliment the interesting story.
Love the gorgeous illustrations!
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg is a classic, and a perfect one to read on Christmas Eve. The book’s beautiful wintery illustrations won a Caldecott medal, and its story is compelling enough to make anyone believe in Santa—even if just for a minute. What kid didn’t want to be the protagonist and get taken by train to the North Pole?
