At this time of year kids all over the country are settling in on the carpets in their classrooms and their public libraries to listen to holiday stories.

Jan Brett's books have become a standard for those Christmas storytimes. Many young children associate books like "The Hat," "The Mitten," "The Animals' Santa," and of course "Gingerbread Friends" with the holidays, and those kids will be very excited to learn that Brett is coming out with a new book this holiday season, "Gingerbread Christmas."

Old favorite Gingerbread Baby takes center stage in this new, cleverly illustrated book, as he tries to take his gingerbread band to the Christmas festival and is of course chased by the hungry children throughout the Swiss village.

Jan Brett is heading out on a national book tour to promote her new story this season, and Milwaukee is one of the stops! Boswell Books is sponsoring her appearance at Central Library in downtown Milwaukee on Sunday, December 4 at 10 a.m.

Don't miss the gingerbread fun this holiday season!
