    This is an absolute favorite of mine. I directed a children's Christmas program using this story one year, and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it, and the children had a wonderful time preparing and presenting it. So glad to give this book to my granddaughter.

    This is What the Christmas Story is All About!

    Be forewarned all ye faint of heart -- the Herdmans are coming!

    This is one of the best Christmas books we have on our shelf. It garners a five-star rating with our family and we simply cannot recommend it highly enough!

    It is refreshing to find a modern story which represents the true meaning of God's Greatest Gift and exactly why He bestowed it upon us. His Gift of Love was not presented that first Christmas only to the rich, or the pure of heart, or those with proper manners and clean fingernails! Jesus, the Hope of mankind was given to us ALL! And the unabashed authenticity and eager receptiveness -- albeit at times frightening for the poor shepherds and baby angels (!!) -- with which the Herdmans receive, question and illustrate the Christmas story is uplifting. This book will make you laugh out loud. It will make you cry. It will make you think about your own worldview and motives. And then, it will make you laugh again.

    The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a quick and easy read, appropriate for adults and children alike. While its true this is a short story, all of the characters are fully developed and genuinely likeable. Our entire family, including our preschoolers, has thoroughly enjoyed the humor, wry writing style and poignancy of the storyline held within these pages, as well as come away from each year's reading with newfound precious nuggets of Truth. Additionally, the simple black and white illustrations of the 1972 printing are quirky and lend a certain necessary "wild" element to the perception of the Herdmans; I wholeheartedly suggest that it is worth the time and effort to track down a copy of the 1972 edition.

    If you collect and enjoy Christmas books, then The Best Christmas Pageant Ever deserves a spot on your bookshelf. Read it together with your children every year and be blessed!

    The story should remind all readers to not be judemental

    based wholely on what we see. God loves to work behind the scenes, even when all we see seems to be the worst in a person or a situation. God can and does make jewels from the roughest stones!!

    It is a really good picture of how things tend to "be" within a Christian Church, with the assumption that everyone "knows" the Christmas story. I liked the message, the reminder of who Christ is, and the importance of being prepared to tell the story of Jesus, in a loving manner, even to the most difficult personalities. Christ was born and died for all of us, not just some of us.
