Polar Bears Past Bedtime - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

 

This is a good read. A nice adventure to the arctic with lots of interesting facts.

As always, Jack and Annie act as nice foils of each other.

While this one was a bit tamer in terms of adventure, there were a few suspenseful moments.

A fun read and great continuation of the series.

I wish I was a Master Librarian.

The Polar Express
The Polar Express - Chris Van Allsburg

This book is about a little boy that is having a hard time believing in Christmas. The Polar Express picks him up and takes him to the North Pole. Once he gets to the North Pole he meets Santa and Santa gives him a bell off the reindeer. He looses the bell and then it shows up under his tree the next morning with a note from Santa reminding him to just believe. The little boy grows up and he can always hear the bell, but everyone else can't. I would use this book during Christmas time and to teach my students to just believe.

The Polar Express - Chris Van Allsburg

The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg is a holiday book about a boy who goes on a journey on a train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. The story is one that is shared in elementary schools all over every December! Being someone who loves Christmas I plan on always having a day to read this book and do fun Christmas activities. Some of the activities you could do with this include a sequencing game where they put the main events of the story in order or even have the students compare and contrast the characters. There are a lot of different things you could do with this sweet book and your students would love it!

The Polar Express - Chris Van Allsburg

The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg, has become a Christmas Classic in many homes, but I want it to become a Christmas Classic in my classroom. I would use this book for Kindergarten to Third Grade. To incorporate a lesson into the all day Polar Express Christmas party I would read the book to the children first and go over it with them, and then I would have them watch the movie. Later, while they are doing their many activities/crafts that go with the book/movie, I would have them compare and contrast the book and the movie. I hope to use this book for my Christmas party because of all the activities you can do from this book, and I also love the lesson it teaches and reminds you to always believe even if you can't see it. I've always wanted to be able to center my holiday party around this book and the story, so I would definitely use this book in my classroom for my holiday party.
