COLLECTION #116: Books by Chris Van Allsburg

I'm a huge fan of writer/ illustrator Chris Van Allsburg. His style of illustration resonates with my own personal artistic vision, and his books are a treat for the eyes and imagination!

Our favorite Christmas book, that we read as a family every year as a family Christmas Eve tradition, is The Polar Express. We've been doing this for over 20 years, long before there was even a dream for a movie. I thought it would be a perfect addition to our Christmas collection theme!

I wish I had more of his books,  I'll have to get right on that! I hope you like looking at his illustrations as much as I do!
