The Polar Express


The Polar Express was written by Chris Van Allbusrg in 1985.

It's the night of Christmas Eve and a child whose name isn't mentioned, splees in his bedroom and he doesn't believe in Santa Claus. But that night he hears a train whistle, The Polar Express,
which will take him to the Noth Pole, to Santa's house. During the trip he meets many children who love drinking hot chocolate and they sing Christmas songs all together. When he arrives at the North Pole, he meets Santa Claus and he starts believing in him. Santa gives him a bell whichhas the same sound of Santa's sleigh.




How the Grinch Stole Christmas!





This is a tale written by Dr. Seuss in 1957.

The protagonist is the Grinch, a monster who he hates Christmas. He always steals presents from
children. He likes being bad and he wants to destroy this festivity. He doesn't understand that real
Christmas is in the heart not in money.But at the end of the story a child makes him change his
mind, so he starts having real feelings and loving Christmas!






Let it Snow



This book has been written by three authors John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

in 2015. Each author has written a story which is connected to the others by an invisible thread
like the magic of the Christmas. On Christmas day there is a big snowfall and the train of Gracetown gets stuck. After that the three authors start their stories involving many characters.
These tales are love stories and if you are a romance lover and a Christmas lover you must read them!


Letters from Father Christmas





This book includes all the letters that Mr J. R. R. Tolkien has written to his children pretending to

be Santa Claus. He continued writing those letters for thirty years to make his children happy and
joyful on Christmas day. However, he didn't write those letters to be a good father, he wrote them
to increase his fantasy.

The main character is Ebenezer Scrooge, an old financial expert who is miser and stingy and hates Christmas. The story starts on Christmas Eve when Scrooge, after a work day , comes back home.
