It was Polar Express Day today in preschool. I watched the movie last night with my boys and VB who was visiting for the evening. Although I LOVE the book I don't love the movie. It isn't quite right - there are added parts that change the main characters traits and there are added scenes (I'm sure to make the movie longer) that I think are scary and don't add value to the movie. However, that being said, it still makes me tear up every time because it is such a wonderful story about the magic of Christmas.
We read the book first thing this morning and then worked on sorting images according to the number of syllables each word had.
