Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A happy gingerbread man builds a house of gingerbread just in time for Christmas. In the slight text—which has nothing to do with the traditional story of "The Gingerbread Boy"—the Little Gingerbread Man delivers a monologue about how he is going to build a perfect gingerbread house using all manner of candies and sweets. Other gingerbread people, likely his friends and family, appear to cheer on his construction skills or drop off gifts for the season. On the last page, readers learn that even Santa likes his gingerbread house. The art, in muted and hazy colors, presents greeting-card–like scenes of Christmas trees, playful gingerbread people and familiar gingerbread-house building materials. The verse has a couple of fudged rhymes, a stilted rhythm in several sections and an overly effusive tone throughout. While young browsers may initially be attracted to the candy-coated cover, once opened they will realize that, with only four scenes in the whole book, this saccharine package is not worth the time, money or calories. (Board book. 2-4)
