The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson

Stars: ****

I first read this story when I was in gradeschool. Actually the teacher read it to us. Over 10 years later when I saw it at a used book store, I instantly picked up a copy and I don’t have any kids. I re-read it myself and will read it every Christmas Season. It’s about the Herdmans and the Christmas Pageant. The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world and they end up as part of the pageant.

The pageant is about the Birth of Jesus which the Herdmans know nothing about. It’s a very funny story throughout and a very touching story at the end. You don’t really have to be Christian to enjoy this little story. I’m not and I love the story. I definitely recommend it to almost every family as a story to be read year after year. As your kids grow, perhaps they can read it to you.
