The Best Christmas Pageant Ever written by Barbara Robinson.Book cover to The Pageant Ever
The Herdman kids are bad, really the worst kids you could imagine.  They have personalities and idiosyncrasies that make everyone laugh out loud.  The story goes that the Herdman kids have decidedly become interested in the school Christmas pageant. So they begin to bully their way into filling in the lead roles of Mary, Joseph, the Angel and the Wise men.  Their mission is madness but, at the end of the day there is a warm fuzzy feeling that reminds us of how special Christmas can be. I’ve recommended this to many adults with no children at home and they loved it too.
This book is available in print, CD, also in downloadable electronic audio.
