The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book! It made me think about what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. Also the old adage came to my mind that one should not judge a book by its cover. Lots of comedy and humor in this book when Charlie's mother talks about the Herdman family. I am going to use this for a guided reading group in December. It has 108 pages and I recently purchased it for $1.00 at my school book-fair.

I also wanted to let my Sanford colleagues know that this week on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, I am going to the television station in town. The people who run the station are going to be making a video of me reading "Quiet Place" by Don Wood. It is one of my all-time favorite books.
