This past week my boys and I read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson. We read the version we had when I was younger (it has my name stamp that I put in everything when I was little). My oldest son LOVED it. He couldn't get enough of the Herdmen's. We ended the week by going to the local children's theater with a bunch of friends to see a production of the show. The kids loved it and I think all of the mom's shed a few tears. It is a great book about the Christmas message without being preachy. So, if you haven't read it may I recommend it to you this season.
