If you are looking for a quick and entertaining holiday read, then look no further than The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson. The Herdman children make the traditional Holy Child reenactment one that no one will EVER forget.
Every town has one of THOSE familes, a rowdy brood of trouble makers. The Herdmans are every teacher’s bane and every student’s worst nightmare. Setting fires, blackmail, bullying, are smoking in the girl’s bathroom are minor compared to what happens during the Christmas Pageant.
If Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys’s unbelievable antics during the Christmas pageant aren’t enough, then you can continue to enjoy rolling your eyes as you read The Best School Year Even and The Best Halloween Ever.
Children and adults will laugh out loud at the too-real descriptions of those Herdmans.
