The Gingerbread Man and his adventures through the school as he tries to find the class that made him. Throughout the book we see him encounter various people, objects and locations in the school. In the end he finds his way back to the classroom and his new friends. ( )

The Gingerbread Man Loose In School tells the story of the Gingerbread Man as he tries to find the group of kids that made him. The Gingerbread Man visits the gym, the nurse and the principal's office. Finally he finds his class and they have made him a desk in his class. This picture book could be used for introducing kindergarten students to the other areas of school on the first week of school. Students will find humor in the rhyme and his adventures through school.

rhyming book that shows what happens to a classes gingerbread man project that comes to life.

A cute story about a gingerbread man lost in a school looking for his class. Rhyming words that make it an easy read for beginner readers. A new spin on the traditional gingerbread story. This would be a fun story to read to students around the Holidays or maybe before the class makes their own gingerbread men.

This is a cute story that would be fun to read with a primary class, after they go on a gingerbread hunt. I enjoyed the spin on the traditional story, where in this case the gingerbread man is trying to run to find the kids, rather than running away from them. I also like the rhyming and comic look in some of the book. The happy ending is also nice to top off the book.

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!
