#HollyJollyReading Day 5: Fats‘ review: “another masterpiece that will remain a children‘s classic and a holiday favorite. I like how the story begins with a boy who was told by a friend that he would never hear the ringing bells of Santa‘s #sleigh because there was no Santa. The boy never believed his friend. The beauty of The Polar Express comes from the magic of believing and the power of childlike wonder.” Full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-aMS
Sigh, this is one of my favourite holiday classics, and I try to read it every year or so. ♥️ It was a perfect way to start my day - paired with some hot chocolate, of course 😉

Took a ride on the Polar Express today with my girls. Hot chocolate, cookie and a bell from Santa. Plus a read along of the story and singing. What a wonderful evening. #SantaTrain.
The Polar Express written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg is a Fiction Caldecott Medal winner. This is an amazing classic book absolutely perfect for the Christmas season! I would use this book as a LC.#ucflae3414f19
One of the most underrated holiday stories comes to life in this F book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. A young boy takes a magical train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. He finds out that one of the children will be selected to receive the first gift of Christmas from Santa. Who will be picked? What will they get? Most importantly, do you still believe? This book won a Caldecott Medal for its fantastic illustrations.
The Polar Express is a holiday classic book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsbury. This fantasy Caldecott winning book tells the story of a young boy who wakes up one night to the sound of a train outside his window. When he boards, he meets other kids, all awaiting a trip to the North Pole. When I was in 1st grade we did a Polar Express night at my school where we watched the movies in our pjs and drank hot chocolate. #UCFLAE3414F19
The Polar Express is an RF picture book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. This book would be best as a RA for grades K-3 during the holiday season. This book follows the journey of a young boy who doubts Santa is real. He boards the Polar Express and enjoys a magical journey throughout the North Pole. The Polar Express was awarded the Caldecott Medal. #UCFLAE3414F19
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg and was the 1986 Caldecott award winner. This is one of those books that defines what it is to be a classic. One of my personal favorites and must read around the holiday times. Between the magical storyline line and the gorgeous illustrations you cannot help but fall in love with this story. I love the use of dark colors and how there is not that much white on the page to set the tone of night time.
The F picture book, The Polar Express, is a holiday classic - going from the perspective of a young boy holding on tightly to his lively spirit with the most special gift of all from the jolly man himself! Winning the Gold Caldecott Award, this book would make an excellent addition to a classroom library and could be told through an AS. #UCFLAE3414F19
The Polar Express written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg is a wonderful RF PB, Caldecott Medal winner, that could be used for S in an elementary classroom. A young boy embarks on an unforgettable train ride to the North Pole where he discovers new friendships and realizes that you should always believe. The Polar Express is an incredible book for children to read to learn about the real Christmas spirit and to always believe. #UCFLAE3414F19
The polar express is one of my favorite book‘s to read during the holiday season! It was written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, who won a Caldecott for this MF PB. The story is about a boy who does not believe in the spirit of Christmas, that is until he ends up on a train traveling to the North Pole. This book would be a great RA to do in the month of December. #ucflae3414f19
This picture book contains a wrap around cover with warm welcoming and inviting pictures that attract kids to read it. The colors are contrasted between light and dark and show us different scenes in different ways to give off a better idea of what they might be talking about. Its contains a good plot and leads up to one big moment all of us are excited and waiting to see!
This is one of my absolute favorite books(pub.1985). Caldecott winner, and for good reason. This book brings great message to reader, but also good description and visualization throughout.
The setting and illustrations are beautiful. The illustrations are far from simple. The descriptions of the places the kids go have enough to visualize their own mountains and trains.
“We climbed mountains so high it seemed as if we would scrape the moon.“
I highly recommend reading The Polar Express to young children in a classroom. It is very “festive“ for the holiday season, and really helps children with the thought of Santa. The Polar Express's illustration is simply beautiful. The author's illustrations suggest a mysterious world.
