Item description for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson...

The Herdman children, who enjoy terrorizing their classmates, volunteer to play the main characters in the Sunday school Christmas pageant.

Publishers Description

Hey Unto you a child is born

The Herdmans are absolutely the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie and steal and smoke cigars (even the girls). They talk dirty, hit little kids, cuss their teachers, set fire to Fred Shoemaker's old broken-down toolhouse, and take the name of the Lord in vain. So no one is prepared when the Herdmans invade church one Sunday-and decide to take over the annual Christmas pageant.

None of them has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating-- has a lot of people up in arms. But the actual pageant is full of surprises for everyone, starting with the Herdmans themselves.

Fast shipping  Dec 15, 2009
Shipping was fast. Book was in great shape. We did receive an older version of the book but that's just fine.
those mean kids at school  Dec 15, 2009
A 30 minute read. Great for the holidays. It will remind you of "that" family at your grade school or church.
The Best Christmas Tale Ever!  Dec 15, 2009
Barbara Robinson has crafted a fantastic tale of the meaning of Christmas. In this 80 page book we come to fear and love the Herdmann clan, a gaggle of 6 kids that see the world their own way, and take it on in their own terms. They are just as likely to klonk a kid in the head as ignore them. They are the "closest thing to criminals that we knew." What does this have to do with Christmas? Well...

Every year a local Church stages a traditional Christmas pageant, but this year the Herdmann's show up in Church on the day that the pageant is announced, and they then show up and end up filling all of the major parts in the play. Everyone keeps their eyes open and their ears to the ground to see what the Herdmann's will do next, and the poor woman that gets saddled with the pageant and the Herdmann's proclaims that "This Will be the Best Christmas Pageant Ever!"

This book is perfect for reading to the kids. I just finished reading it to my 10-yr old daughter (who could have sliced through it in short order herself), and we both enjoyed the experience greatly!

Come along for the adventure as the Herdmanns hear the Christmas strory for the first time, and see what it must have looked like through their eyes.

Truly, Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me," and that included the Herdmanns.

Thanks for a great little book! 5 solid stars!
Fantastic!!!!  Nov 30, 2009
