The Best Christmas Pageant Ever was my favorite Christmas book as a child. I had to read it every year. To me it was the perfect Christmas book for a child. It is a novel about a Church putting on the Christmas Pageant, and how members don’t want the Herman’s to have any roles in the pageant. However looking back as an adult reading the book I realize that the Herman’s needed to be a part of the pageant. They needed to hear the Christmas story, those kids the kids that the town had basically written the Herman’s off as throw away kids. That they where outcast, but it was these people that need to know the love of Jesus that the baby born was the Savior. That the Gospel message is somewhat hidden in this novel for kids.
