Scrumptious Books to Gobble Up

December 4, 2018

Every year, when December rolls around, I immediately want all things gingerbread. The smell. The taste. The intricately decorated houses. And the books!

And where can you go to find all the books you’ll ever need about gingerbread? Why, the library, of course!

Here you can find the classic tale of the gingerbread man.

newWidth) { wasResized = true; return jQuery(iframe).width(newWidth); } if (wasResized && originalWidth + 2*padding < viewPortWidth){ wasResized = false; return jQuery(iframe).width(originalWidth); } }; //-->

And, retellings.

And, clever re-imaginings of your favorite character.

You can even find books about how to decorate them!

Librarian tip: You can even make this a teachable moment! It's a great opportunity to introduce or revisit the five senses - smell, taste, touch, sound, and sight.

Whether your child loves the repetition of the classic story or wants to spend hours with you in your cozy kitchen baking and decorating, you can’t go wrong with these books!

Run, run, as fast as you can…you’ve got to read books about the gingerbread man!
