The Last Holiday Concertby Andrew Clements
166 pages, General Fiction
Reviewed by Knight of Narnia
Great read, with almost nothing to watch out for.
PlotHart shoots a rubber band at the choir teacher to be funny... and nothing good comes of it. Soon the whole class is revolting, refusing to do anything with choir. The teacher gives up, deciding if they want to get up on stage and look stupid at the concert, that's okay with him. But the class starts working together... and a choir program is in the works.
MoralityThe class disobeys Mr. Meinert, the teacher, but nothing serious is done by anybody.
Spiritual ContentSince The Last Holiday Concert is about, well, a holiday concert, lots of the songs have spiritual connotations. One Jewish character comments that her mom might not like the song Silent Night being sung, and the choir sings some Hanukkah songs.
ViolenceNone, but there's chaos in the choir room.
Drug and Alcohol ContentNone.
Sexual ContentHart remarks about one of the girls in his class being pretty, but nothing else.
Crude or Profane Language or ContentOne kid in a dreidel costume throws up, but nothing else.
ConclusionThe Last Holiday Concert is a very good read for younger and older readers. It is very well written, and has a charming message and ending.
