ALA Notable Children's Book, Georgia Children's Book Award, Library of Congress Children's Books, Maud Hart Lovelace Book Award, Young Hoosier Book Award.

Everyone agreed that the six Herdman kids were the worst kids in the world. They lied, they stole, they hit little kids, they talked dirty, and everyone smoked cigars (even the girls.) To the other children Sunday School was a safe haven, because the Herdman's never went there. Then one Sunday, when the Herdman's show up looking for chocolate cake, they hear about the Christmas pageant and decide they want to participate.

Landing all the main parts, what will happen when kids who have never even heard the story of Christmas interpret it for their new church?

    Great way to study literature

    Posted by heidi s. on 27th Apr 2014

    Covers all the literary genres/elements. Can get tedious if followed to a T, but if you feel free to tweak a bit and not do EVERYTHING, these guides are invaluable. My daughter loved the Best Christmas Pageant Ever, she found the story appealing, and the guide helped her to really understand it. Also, a plug for the eguides - they are great! No stacks of books and papers lying around. Print only what you need, and with a kindle version of the book, you have a quality literature study that takes up virtually no space at all!
