"This picture book introduces the infamous Herdman clan, "the worst kids in the history of the world," to children not yet old enough to sit through a reading of the beloved 1972 novel, which was also adapted into a made-for-TV movie in 1983. For adults who may not know the story, we'll recap: the notorious Herdman siblings, after suddenly showing up for Sunday school near Christmas one year, take over all of the leading roles in the church's annual Christmas pageant - and the results are simultaneously disastrous, hysterically funny, and heartwarming."

Although I don't really practice Christianity anymore...I still love this book. My family had it when I was a kid and I would read it even during the summer because it is just such a fun read. Short and sassy. The Herdmans rock! Shazam!

This is a great book to read to children who don't know the birth of Christ story as well as Christian children because the pagent is explained.

I gave it 3 stars because I don't like the illustrations, but that is personal preference.

If a child can read chapter books, go for the unabridged version of this book. It is only 90 pages long.

I'd forgotten just how funny and touching this was until I read it again tonight. A great read-out-loud book for elementary school children or even young-at-heart adults too!
