In Laura Murray’s version, the Gingerbread Man is a school-aged boy who wants to do something extra nice for a special person this holiday season, but the snowy weather and his doughy nature make it a challenge. Luckily for him, the recipient of his gift finds an inventive way to help him  so all can enjoy the Christmas miracle of giving.

Mike Lowery’s bright, uncomplicated illustrations bring the Gingerbread’s gift-giving mission to life in an amusing way sure to please young readers and the read-to-me crowd alike. A sound lesson in doing “small acts of kindness” for others in the community will please parents and teachers alike who want to instill a sense of unselfish giving in their charges.
