I love the Polar Express so much I could read it all day and even though im only 9 I am possitive that will be adults favorite book too.
A picture book that has been around for thirty years; It is a classic for a reason. A beautiful story for all ages. kkb librarian
There could be a lesson learned from reading this book. The story is beautiful and bittersweet. While it is mainly a Christmas story, it can be read anytime.
