When I was in the third grade my teacher read us Polar Express. I remember loving the paintings in the book and wishing I could take a magical ride too. I vividly remember my teacher not being able to read the last page of the book, her eyes filled with tears and she had a student read it for her. I didn’t understand why she was so sad.
I turned 27 and then book was turned into a film! I was so excited, I dragged my whole family to see the movie. None of them had even heard of the book. I cried almost the whole movie, and now it’s a Christmas classic for everyone in my family.
