The Polar Express

The Polar Express is an enchanting holiday tale of a young boy who doubts that Santa Claus truly exists. On one special Christmas Eve, as the boy skeptically waits for the sound of sleigh bells, a magical train appears outside his home and the conductor invites him aboard.

What lies ahead is an extraordinary adventure of self-discovery through which the young boy learns that for those who believe, the wonders of life never fade.

This beautifully made film, based on the book by Chris Van Allsburg, was one we enjoyed learning about for a day or two.

We began our journey with reading a condensed version of the book. We then used flour, tracks, and automated train cars to create our own version of the story!
