I first read this book in 2006. It's one of THE MOST SPECIAL books about children helping children. I think because I am Robbie. Awkward, nervous, no confidence. To tell you the truth, I can not get through this book without tearing up. To me, it's THAT GOOD!

When this precious child stumbles over his words and can't make a speech, his classmates help him in the most wonderful way. Everyone is in tears. It is seriously beautiful.

Here is a link to purchase it.
Story starts with a nice message of students sticking up for and protecting a classmate with a speech impediment then evolves into traditional holiday themes as Robbie tries to write a Christmas story for the school performance. Heartwarming. The illustrations are pleasantly quirky, but the people's lips have a weird "donut-y" or sock monkey look to them that I don't care for.
Every time Robbie gets excited his words come out all wrong, and when he is selected to write and tell a special Christmas story at the school assembly, he needs plenty of help from his friends. -

Give before you take. Show kindness to someone new. Forgive a person who has hurt you. Great lessons for kids.

Cute Christmas book that shows kids being kind to someone that's a little different :-) We are reading a Christmas picture book each night and this is the book the girls chose. They really liked it...its a quick 7 minutes or so to read aloud. It would be great in a classroom where people are judging a person, not by there heart, but by their ability to be average.

I found this book at the library last year and got it because it had a little red headed boy. . . what I found was I was crying before the end. When I read it to my family, I couldn't finish it. I passed it to my husband, and he couldn't finish it outloud either. Definitely my
favorite Christmas children's book now.
Maybe its Robbie's hair color that first alerted me to this book.He is a fellow redhead. He is chosen(by drawing a name out of a hat) to tell a special Christmas story at school. His words get jumbled when he is excited or nervous.(Maybe we have more in common then just hair color). Cute story.
Really neat story for elementary aged kids, about the importance of standing up for your classmates and friends. Bravo!
Adorable book. Love the message it gives.
