A twist on the classic gingerbread man story, this naughty gingerbread man is bested by a "smart kid" (found in the library reading a book). The chart on the back calls this "progressive reader" and is one level below "transitional reader" but I think it is a little text-heavy. It is action-packed though, and a swift enough story to want to keep a kid reading. Illustration on every page assist the text in story-telling. Not rhyming but fluid and repetitive, like the original story, so a kid can constantly review a word just learned.

The principal brought a gingerbread cookie to school. The cookie became a real (alive). The cookie ran away from everyone. It loved to run way from people. He got to a little boy. The boy caught him because the gingerbread cookie was to busy talking and arguing with the boy. He was not paying attention to what the boy was actually doing. The cookie was caught and the cookie turned back into a cookie. The cookie got knocked out of the boys hands and out the window where a dog was sitting. The dog the the cookie.


I did not enjoy this book to well. I guess it taught the reader not to be mean. I dis not get into this book and neither did my kids.

1. Make gingerbread cookies.
2. Coloring pages in building a school with the boy and cookie.
3. could also read this when learning the letter "G".
