Gingerbread Friends (preschool book club)

Hannah and I had been reading the Gingerbread Man story in Spanish and wanted to get together with friends to enjoy the tale.  We centered this preschool book club party around the book Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett.  We played together, decorated cookies (the kids didn't care that they were made with garbanzo flour), read the story all together, and then shared lunch with friends.  When I am not overwhelmed by schedules and projects, we love to host these book clubs with friends.  What a delightful way to learn and play with others.
