The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever¸ Barbara Robinson
(Tyndale House, 1972), pb., 80pp.
Ages 5+

It has become a bit of a tradition in our house for Tammie to read this book to the kids at Christmas- and she reads it well! Even after several readings she laughs almost uncontrollably at several points and cries at the conclusion.

It really is a well-written, fun, touching little story about looking afresh at the reality of the Christmas story. The “worst kids in town,” the Herdmans, get into the church’s Christmas pageant and discover the power of this story while some of the regular church members can’t see past their preconceived notions.

The Herdmans do use the Lord's name in vain in a couple of places.  We just edit these on the go.
This is a nice one to enjoy and benefit from.

One of my favorites too. I'm reading it with one of my classes this month.
