    Polar Express
    By Tracy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I use The Polar Express to teach similes and interesting word choice. The kids also like to brainstorm other "first gifts" that the boy could have asked for. I always jingle some hidden bells when I finish reading the story. Have you read Santa's Book of Names by David McPhail? It is about a little boy who is struggling with learning to read and how he helps Santa out of a jam. Other great Christmas themed books are Silver Packages and Welcome Comfort
