The Polar Express: by Chris Van Allsburg
Author: Chris Van Allsburg
|A magical train ride on Christmas Eve takes a boy to the North Pole to receive a special gift from Santa. |
Late one Christmas Eve after the town has gone to sleep, the boy boards the mysterious train that waits for him: the Polar Express bound for the North Pole. When he arrives, Santa offers the boy any gift he desires. The boy modestly asks for one bell from the harness of the reindeer. The gift is granted. On the way home the bell is lost. On Christmas morning, the boy finds the bell under the tree. The mother of the boy admires the bell, but laments that it is broken - for you see, only believers can hear the sound of the bell. Recommended for ages 5 to 8.
The 1986 Caldecott Medal winner.
