Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg

The Polar Express is written by Chris Van Allsburg and is a Caldecott Award winning book. Also a famous movie with Tom Hanks featuring in various roles. The book begins on the night of Christmas Eve. A young boy lays in bed when suddenly he hears Santa’s Sleigh. The book is about this young boy as he goes on an adventure where he boards a very magical train that takes him on the ride of his life. The book is about having belief no matter what the odds are. If you believe in magic , if you believe in Santa, if you believe you can do extraordinary things then it will surely happen.

Little Women by Lousia May Alcott

Four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March, are part of a poor but loving family. With their father off to war they have only their mother left to encourage them to be the best version of themselves at all times. As they go through love and loss they truly do learn to become ‘little women’. A personal favourite. Again a movie too with stellar performances.

The Nutcracker By E.T.A. Hoffman

If your child is doing ballet then he/she is going to be obsessed with this one. We also recommend listening to Tachikovsky’s original ballet score once you have read this book. The story revolves the great war between mice and nutcracker. One of most famous ballets in history, the take is equally enjoyable
