The Polar Express Storybook
Based on the popular children's book The Polar Express, this is a story of a young boy and his sister who learn from their friends that there is no Santa Claus. On Christmas Eve, however, the boy hears a distant whistle and sees a locomotive pull into his front yard. He boards it and is on a journey northward; the destination is the North Pole.
After he and the other children disembark, they learn that it is nearly time for Santa to begin his annual Christmas Eve journey. However, he will select one of them to receive the first gift of Christmas, which can be anything that they wish. The young boy is selected and, after much thought, he chooses a bell from the harness of Santa's reindeer.
When he begins his trip to his home, the boy discovers that he had a hole in his pocket and he lost the bell. The next morning though, he receives an extra present: the bell with a note from Santa. His parents are disappointed because they do not hear the sweet jingle from it, and they think that it is broken. However, the boy and his sister DO hear the clear, sweet sound because of their faith.
Many years later, the sister could no longer hear the jingle, but the boy always could. He always believed in the spirit of Christmas.
