Nice story! Jun 16, 2007
Robbie is in 2nd grade. He is shy and nervous. His classmates do the unexpected as Robbie searches for a Christmas story to present. I would recommend. Great character trait story! Beautiful illustrations!
Redheaded Robbie is Fun and Moving Nov 15, 2006
This story of a nervous boy who has to write and tell a Christmas story at school is touching, and fun. While asking for help from his friends, and being a moral example to them, Robbie doesn't realize he's writing the perfect Christmas story. This will soon be a Classic!
excellent story Dec 13, 2003
I"m taking a reading course and the instructor read this book... everyone was in tears. This is a wonderful story!! I left class and found the nearest book store and bought it. I love children's books that teach valuable lessons. I plan to use it to teach my students how to identify the character, goal or problem and the solution.
