Gingerly's Gift (Volume 4) by Terri Kelley is the fourth book of the series. This book has Gingerly and her friends Zoey and Eric trying to spread the cheer and joy of the Christmas season at West Intermediate School. The school has forbidden everyone to display 'Merry Christmas' on their campus due to the pressure from outside camps and the politics surrounding the school. These three friends want to celebrate the season with their pals. The book is ideal for the Christmas season.

The author has captured the spirit and essence of the Christmas season wonderfully. December, as we all know, is a beautiful month owing to the magical presence of snow in many countries. It is good to see the towns all spruced up for the joyous season. The book speaks of how the three friends try to spread the Christmas cheer in their school. There is something magical about Christmas and the season which forms the backdrop of this story.

The story is simple and described in a very neat and elegant style that can be easily comprehended by children. The underlying theme of friendship runs through the series, which enables schoolchildren to relate to the events and episode in a better manner. The story also shows us how children rise up situations in life and handle them in a positive manner. Gingerly and Zoey define the meaning of friendship, love, and respect. The reader can actually feel the seasonal spirit and joy of Christmas by reading this book.
