Books for Kids! Now through Mar 19 

Help Stock Ivy Rehab!


Together we can help little warriors on their road to recovery through the power of storytelling! 


Last year we were inspired by Jim and Rebecca, whose personal experience at the NICU in Peoria, led them to donate books for babies, so families could read to their littlest warriors as they grew and gained strength.  


“When our granddaughter was born at St Francis in Peoria, she was transferred to the NICU immediately. She was there 15 days. The nurses encouraged us to read to her, but there was only one book for the 60 room NICU at that time. We read that book to our granddaughter yet felt sad that we had the only book available. So, we want to supply books to the NICU in the hope that there will be at least one book per NICU room.” ~Rebecca & Jim Christian


This year we’re continuing the giving for a new location and a broader age group and we’d like your help! 


Now through March 19th stop by the store and purchase a new book at checkout that will be donated to Ivy Rehab for Kids.  


Our staff picked out just the right books for families to read to their little warriors.  


The process is easy: 

  • When you go to check out, select a book. 
  • We’ll add the price of the book to your total. 
  • Then we’ll donate the book on your behalf. 
  • Sorry but the program isn’t accepting used books at this time. 

Who is Ivy Rehab?


They are a physical rehab facility for young patients whose goal is to make their experience as close to “playtime” as possible. And at Gingerbread House Toys we know that playtime is grow time!  


Their specially-trained pediatric therapists work one-on-one with young patients to help them, encourage progress, and form lasting bonds. In addition, they work closely with physicians, parents, caregivers, and teachers with a collaborative approach to care to facilitate great clinical and functional outcomes. Their therapists work closely with each patient to create the individualized recovery plans.  And they are dedicated to helping children reach their full potential, faster!
