    "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a really cute children's book. Is it the best book for kids? I don't know, but it's certainly up there. If you have young kids around I'd recommend checking it and letting them read it, or reading it to them. "

    "On my daughters birthday, she received a copy of The Watsons Go to Birmingham 1963. At first, she was so upset about "getting a book for her birhtday", but then we started reading. From page 1 she was hooked! If you have a child that thinks they don't like reading, give The Watsons Go to Birmingham 1963 a shot. "

I thought it'd be a cool trick to show them what an actual book looks like, as their heads seem always buried in those blasted i-whatevers. This was a great purchase: Nicola is written convincingly, and the situations are kid safe."
