I had a children's book called something like 'The Worst Kids In The World' about some unkempt and unruly children who bullied their way into a nativity and the responsibility of it changed them profoundly. I wish I could remember more about it - not preachy, just lovely! That and the The Vain Little Tree were my Yule classics.

Lisa - those both sound like good books. I've never read either one. I'll have to check them out. Thanks for the suggestions!
