I am a huge fan of all books about Gingerbread men! This book was no exception. It's a fun read aloud book with it's rhyme, detailed illustrations and graphic book style. The little Gingerbread man is made by a classroom then sets out on adventure through the school. Told in first person from the point of the Gingerbread man. ( )

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!
