Gingerbread Baby - By Jan Brett

This is a twist on the familiar gingerbread man story.  A nice aspect of this version is that the gingerbread baby does not get eaten!  The plot is fun, but the amazing illustrations are what really make this a wonderful book for children.  The Scandinavian pictures are so detailed, including borders on every page, as well as gingerbread cutouts on the sides, that allow the reader to know what is happening to other characters at the same time.
