The don't miss, laugh-out-loud Christmas favorite! The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale—the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating--has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever. As a reviewer commented: "In the end, this is not just a funny book, but a powerful story of redemption. Through most of the book, I can't stop laughing, but by the end I am always reading through tears, even after having read it eleven times." Anita Silvey, in her guidebook Children's Books and Their Creators, agreed: "The book is great fun and continues to be enjoyed by readers each holiday season."

The Herdmans plus Halloween have always spelled disaster. Every year these six kids -- the worst in the history of Woodrow Wilson School, and possibly even the world -- wreak havoc on the whole town.

There won't be any Herdmans to contend with this year, but there won't be any candy, either. And what's Halloween without candy? And without trick-or-treating? The Herdmans manage to turn the worst Halloween ever into the best Halloween ever in this uproarious sequel to The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

This engaging work takes a humorous look at a group of children (and their adult directors) preparing a Christmas play. From tryouts through the performance they experience Jesus in new and genuine ways. Young people will relate to the characters portrayed here, such as a star with a stage mother, an enthusiastic first-time director, a jaded preacher's kid, and a lonely youngster who discovers the gospel of Christ and the real meaning of Christmas for the first time.The most appealing features of this entertaining piece are its flexibility and practicality. The unique format allows several opportunities for children to share their individual talents (singing, playing piano or instruments, etc.) as they audition for the pageant. The material is easy to learn, and you can choose well-known Christmas carols for the choir to sing. Requiring few costumes and simple sets, this play allows you to involve as few or as many as you wish. Around the core cast of six children and four adults (who could be portrayed by older youth) are a choir (including all participants) and preschool children cast as animals. This inspirational resource can be adapted for presentation by churches of any size, and can be used as a children's production or a youth production.

Children develop in so many ways - physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Story is just one of the ways to foster and support a child's faith development. They can find role models in the positive characters in literature, and develop empathy for others when they see a different point of view presented. Children's Books that Nurture the Spirit is an introduction to quality children's literature for spiritual development. The most current and readily available children's literature is reviewed by the author. In addition, Granahan suggests ways for leaders to use and extend the literature.
