Step #1
“Gingerbread Friends” by Jan Brett is a charming and fun book that will inspire your inner baker and remind your Lil’ about the importance of friendship.
Remember, the first time you read a book should be for enjoyment and since our book this month is about a gingerbread baby, grab a cookie and some milk for your Lil’ to snack on as you read!
