The Gingerbread House

Does anything inspire holiday feelings more than the smell of fresh baking cookies? The Gingerbread House is a classic retelling of the Gingerbread Man fairy tale, with a holiday twist. The twist is that you can catch this cookie by building him a house, and maybe a car.

Gingerbread building is a favorite tradition with my son, even into his teens. He would have loved this book when he was younger. I can just imagine him insisting on reading it before we started our creations.

The rhyming text is great for those little ones that want to hear the story “Just one more time.” The multi-media art is simple and iconic, the perfect way to start off the holiday season. I foresee this book becoming a tradition of its own in many homes.

Run run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me…. or can you? 

About The Book:
Every Christmas season, gingerbread men come alive. The only way to keep them around until Christmas, is through a treasured and tasty secret. If it’s done right, something special is left behind.
