Rated 5 out of 5 by from Express into Your Heart After reading and memorizing most of the christmas stories, the Polar Express opened my eyes to a new and wonderful experience. After reading it, The Polar Express has become one of the favorite chirstmas stories in my family, and has become a tradition of reading the book on chirstmas eve. A wonderful book for anyone young, or young at heart.
