  • This book tells the story of a magical journey and young boy makes to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. The story is captivating to any child. After the story the children made a bell necklace. As the story goes, you can only hear the bell if you believe in Santa's magic. Great story.

    I was very happy to find the hardcover Polar Express 25th Anniversary Edition. The books will be used on a Polar Express train adventure as we read the story together. The books are perfect and the ornament is a bonus to hang on the Christmas tree for years to come. Great gift and keepsake!!!

    Wonderful book. My son loves listening to the CD in the car. The ornament that came with it is a little cheap looking, but I wasn't really expecting it to be collector worthy.
