Funny, memorable story of incorrigible children who discover the true meaning of Christmas. A simple, enchanting tale that has become one of America's favorite Christmas stories.
Included in Sonlight H, this classic Read-Aloud is good for the whole family, from early elementary on. It's an annual tradition in many homeschool homes … and it is worth the rereading, every time.
When the usual director of the church Christmas pageant breaks her leg, the narrator's mother takes over. The neighborhood hooligans show up for rehearsal, lured by the promise of free food, and, against all reason, decide they want the starring roles in the pageant.
The description of the rehearsals is laugh out loud funny, but when the night comes, the actual performance is unexpected. Thought-provoking (tear-jerking for some of us!), incredibly beautiful.
