Free Video Message from Santa
This is just about the cutest annual freebie ever. Create a free video message from Santa himself with Portable North Pole. There are lots of ways to personalize the video for those of you who may want a little extra magic this season.
Free Online Storytime: The Polar Express
Barnes and Noble’s free Online Storytime includes The Polar Express, read by author Christ Van Allsburg. To find it, scroll directly under the video box and click on the 11th storytime (the image of the train). I adore this book – it’s just gorgeous and – I’ll admit it – the ending makes me cry every time. There are also a bunch of other online storytimes available at Barnes and Noble, including The Kissing Hand, in case you didn’t shed enough tears over The Polar Express.
Note also that the official Polar Express website offers a bunch of free Polar-Express-themed fun, like coloring pages, recipes and activities.
