After my 5 year grandson recently visited the George Eastman House (Rochester NY) to see the exquisite display of gingerbread houses, I promised I would help him build a house. I borrowed all the gingerbread books available in our county library system. Most gingerbread books are "okay", but in my estimation, not worth purchasing. Based on the description of "How To Build A Gingerbread House", I decided to order it from Amazon.
When the book arrived in the mail, imagine my delight when my little grandson (who seems to run and play nonstop) sat down with me to look at the book's photographs. We had a "serious" discussion deciding which construction and ornaments we would use to construct our house ;-)
My compliments to the author, Christina Banner.
But back to the book, the steps are all laid out for someone to follow and presents a lot of neat ideas for people to create their own or give it a different look than the houses presented in the book. The book is full of photos. There seems to be numerous pictures on every page that corresponds to what you are working on and every photo is in color. There has to be over 200 photos in this book. The timeline is a major help on knowing how long to expect at each step and allows me to schedule my house. My personal favorite is the Easter and will be doing this with my daughter this coming Easter. A must have for gingerbread fans.
So if you are just starting out - I'd give this book 4 stars. Christina, if you read this - I really hope you consider writing another book with more creative structures, patterns and ideas.
