DAY 5 of 12
“At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed,
it fell silent for all of them..”
The Polar Express
by Chris Van Allsburg
1986 Caldecott Medal Winner
A young boy, lying awake one Christmas Eve, is welcomed aboard a magical trip to the North Pole . . .
Through dark forests, over tall mountains, and across a desert of ice, the Polar Express makes its way to the city atop the world, where the boy will make his Christmas wish.

Book Bean: Hot Choc-o-Late!
Made from scratch with cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate, milk and cream. Yum. OH yeah and with marshmallows of course.
Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me,
as it does for all who truly believe.”
