Best Christmas Pageant Ever

It's a cute Christmas book. As a child, I would watch the movie version every year.

interesting twist

This Herdmans are the meanest kids in town, but for some reason (the snacks, maybe?) they sign up to be part of the annual Christmas pageant. You will see the Christmas story in a new light if you read this. HEY! Unto you a child is born!!
