The Gingerbread House

by Laura Gia West

Do you like gingerbread? Laura Gia West has cooked up a sweet treat with her rhyming tale of The Gingerbread House. You’ll want to read it aloud to enjoy the rhymes. There were a few places that seemed a little forced and not as predictable as I would like to see in a children’s book. It also had a font feature at the beginning of some lines that made reading difficult for me, so I’m sure it would give trouble to a younger reader. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and fun, and I think children would enjoy reading this picture book with their favorite grown-up, especially during the Christmas season.

I would like to extend my thanks to NetGalley and to Victory Editing NetGalley Co-op for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

      Betty, I hope the move to Assisted Living will be a positive one for you and that you will be able to get the help you and Bob need. I also hope that you will be able to continue reading as that is such an important part of your life. I haven’t really changed to romances. I still read a lot of cozy mysteries, but I have expanded my reading to include more genres. I have enjoyed chatting with you about books over the years, and you have been an inspiration to me both personally and as a blogging reviewer. I will continue praying for you, my friend, and I send you my wishes for God’s best for you.

    Great review, Linda. I read this one to my grandkids last year and I commented that some of the rhyming was a bit rough. They really liked it, especially the illustrations.
