The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
by Barbara Robinson
The best Christmas pageant ever - staged by the Herdmans, the "worst kids in the history of the world". They lie and steal and smoke cigars (even the girls) and talk dirty and hit little kids and cuss their teachers and burn down buildings.
So what are they doing, acting in a Christmas pageant in a church - playing the key roles, to boot? But isn't this what Christmas is all about? The birth of the Savior of sinners?
Never having heard the Christmas story before, the Herdmans react in a way that helps the good people of the church - and us - to see Christmas in a new light.
One of the most moving Christmas stories ever. If you're looking for the best inspirational stories for kids, this is a good one to start with.
