The Gingerbread Man Loose In the School by Laura Murray


Hilarious! I love this book! I loved it so much I read about 3 pages, did not read the rest, and bought it on the spot! How can you go wrong when it starts off, "I began in a bowl." A group of children measured and mixed to create a gingerbread man. Unfortunately it was time for recess and the children sped out of the room....without the gingerbread man knowing it. A distressed gingerbread man then sets out in search of the lost children. "I'll run and I'll run, As fast as I can. I can catch them! I'm their gingerbread man!" Along the way the gingerbread man meets lots of other school employees: art teacher, principal, nurse, etc. I can NOT wait to share this with the kids! Adults will love the humor used throughout the book as well!


Text: 5 Buckeye Leaves - in a word - CLEVER
Illustrations: 5 Buckeye leaves - Fits perfectly
Endpages: 4 Buckeye leaves
