About the Book



When a class leaves for recess, their Gingerbread Man is left behind. But he's a smart cookie. He'll run, slide, skip, and (after a mishap with a soccer ball) limp as fast as he can. With help from the gym teacher, the nurse, the art teacher, and even the principal, the Gingerbread Man finds his class, assured they'll never leave him behind again.



Book Synopsis



A very smart cookie is doing the chasing in this sweet and funny twist on the classic tale.

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, the Gingerbread Man does find his class, and he's assured they'll never leave him behind again.

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.

Look for all of this hilarious Gingerbread Man's adventures: The Gingerbread Man Loose at School, The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck, The Gingerbread Man Loose at Christmas, The Gingerbread Man Loose at the Zoo, and The Gingerbread Man and the Leprechaun Loose at School!



Review Quotes




"This title will leave kids giggling as they follow the sometimes dire consequences of the G-man's efforts to be reunited with his class. . . . This reinvention of a venerable figure is funny to the max." -- Booklist, starred review

My students love it!

4 out of 5 stars
Kinder Teacher - 11 years ago
I teach kindergarten and my kids love this book. It has some funny parts which my students thought were hilarious. They always want to read this story! It has rhyming words throughout. My students love trying to finish the sentences. It is a cute story that also helps introduce people in the school such as the nurse, coach, and even principal.
