Does anyone else remember reading this in school when they were younger? It was my favorite Christmas book growing up. It is the story of a "bad" family named the Herdman's and how they get involved with a local church's Christmas pageant. I found it at the library because I wanted to read it to Emma. We are only about 25 pages into it, but we are both enjoying it.
I also found out that the Art Center of the Ozarks does the play every year. I'm hoping to get to take Emma to see it, but it will depend on a few things. If you are looking for a good holiday book, I highly suggest this. It is good for the whole family.
