It reads as good as it looks, this book is about a gingerbread man who is looking for whoever baked him. Funny the children are looking for him too and it seems he gets himself into a little mischief here and there but all in good fun and hes on a noble quest so I think its ok. Once again its funny and one of those to share with kinds in the classroom or at home.

My class has read about 10 different versions of the gingerbread man (including the gingerbread girl, cowboy, etc). They are going to be SO excited when I bring them this one to share! ( )

Children in a elementary classroom bake a gingerbread man and leave the classroom to go to another class, but the gingerbread man wakes up! He spends the rest of the story searching the school for his lost friends.

This was an interesting read that I enjoyed since I have read the regular Gingerbread man. Instead of the Ginger Bread Man running away from his makers, he instead goes looking for his baker friends. The cookies takes a journey through the school and finally ends with finding the children. I like how this book rhymes throughout, this would help kids see how books can rhyme. ( )

This book is a book told through the eyes of a gingerbread man who was made by a school class. When the class goes out to recess he tries to follow them. He gets help from different school staff members. Finally the school principal shows the gingerbread man that the class who made him is looking for him and made missing posters. The gingerbread man returns to an excited class and is given a gingerbread desk, chair, and home. He is overjoyed to be part of the class! ( )

Book description
A gingerbread man searches all over the school for the group of children that made him and then left him behind.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399250522, Hardcover)

When a class leaves for recess, their just-baked Gingerbread Man is left behind. But he's a smart cookie and heads out to find them. He'll run, slide, skip, and (after a mishap with a soccer ball) limp as fast as he can because: "I can catch them! I'm their Gingerbread Man!"

With help from the gym teacher, the nurse, the art teacher and even the principal, a deliciously sweet ending is served up for both the Gingerbread Man and the children who made him.

 Teachers often use the Gingerbread Man story to introduce new students to the geography and staff of schools, and this fresh, funny twist on the original can be used all year long. Includes a poster with fun activities!
