Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-When Robbie is chosen to make up a Christmas story and tell it to the whole school at the holiday assembly, the second grader is worried that his nervous speech impediment will embarrass him. However, he attempts to write a story, going to each of his friends and asking them for ideas. In the process, he corrects their materialistic and selfish views of Christmas, which turns out to be helpful at the assembly. The plot is formulaic and the writing is stiff; there is nothing in the text to hold readers' attention. The illustrations have a cartoonlike, quirky charm, but they are not enough to rescue this heavy-handed tale.-E. M.

Review

"... varied perspectives; unusual shades of burgundy, gray, and gold; and funny round-headed kids complement the humor of the story." -- Kirkus Reviews, November 1, 2003

"Possibly the cutest holiday book to hit the shelves...Melanson's funky, cartoonlike charaters are the perfect complement to Luttrell's text." -- Knoxville, TN News Sentinel, December 7, 2003

"Redheaded Robbie's Christmas Story" produces such a warm glow that it could very well become a Christmas classic." -- Louisville, Kentucky Courier-Journal, December 7, 2003

"The Christmas ideal of compassion and generosity is the star of this story of a tongue-tied second-grader." -- Associated Press, December 1, 2003

Robbie is in 2nd grade. He is shy and nervous. His classmates do the unexpected as Robbie searches for a Christmas story to present. I would recommend. Great character trait story! Beautiful illustrations!

Format: Hardcover
Redheaded Robbie is chosen to write and read a Christmas story at the school assembly. But, Robbie did not want to be chosen because he his words get jumbled up when he is nervous, exited or upset. Robbie asks his friends for help with his story, but ends up giving them advice about what Christmas is all about. At the assembly, Robbie gets up to tell his story, but the words don't come out right. His friends, Big Eddie, Cool Katie, and Munching Max come to his aide and share stories of how Robbie helped them see what Christmas is really all about: Give before you take; Show kindness to someone new; Forgive a person who has hurt you. It's really a lovely story and the illustrations are beautiful.

By Mary Wiser on December 28, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I get a little misty eyed each time I read it. It's the story of a little 2nd-grade boy, Robbie, who can't seem to speak properly whenever he gets nervous or excited. All the kids in his class are anxious to see whose name will be drawn from the hat, to write a Christmas story to read in the school assembly...and of course, Robbie's name is drawn. He goes to all his friends to ask for help with his story, and it's just the sweetest thing I've read in a long time. It teaches kids how to help others and how to stick up for your friends. It teaches what Christmas is about.
