I recall this book and bought it because it was the exact one I read when I was a child. I love how it repeats and how the photos are just so colorful. I read this one every night to my daughter and my favorite part is the ending when the Gingerbreadman gets eaten but it's not sad because they remind us how they come back again when we bake more gingerbread men. It's a must for anyone who loves the classics.

I love all things gingerbread because it is a link to my past and my future! I have recipes from my grandmother that I made for my grandson at age 18 months! He loved everything about the gingerbread man at age 20 months before he could even clearly say the word. His love for gingerbread continues - h e is now a wonderful young man (ALMOST 20) years In college and still requests gingerbread cookies. How good does life get when generations converge!

I love this version because life goes on! and in this version of the gingerbread man, life goes on!

Here is another delicious version of the classic story of the little Gingerbread Man who leaped from the oven and led a merry chase. Eric Kimmell's snappy, fast-moving text and rhyming, rhythmic taunt draw readers into the story, leading them from scene to scene up to the traditional ending -- which is softened by an additional rhyme, showing a troop of gingerbread people leaping from a fresh cookie sheet. Megan Lloyd brings Kimmell's text to vibrant life, updating the traditional scene: the elderly couple do their baking in a modern country kitchen, and the farm animals pursue the running treat past a modern-style beehive, an abandoned pickup truck, and other "country style" debris. This version strikes a happy medium between Galdone's classic rendition and Egielski's more modern twist on the story. It's a rollicking read, suitable for preschool and elementary audiences.

My preschool students enjoyed hearing and looking at the pictures in this version of the story. I like to read multiple versions of the same story, and my students seem to, also.

Slightly different twist than the traditional as far as the ending. Fun to read several different versions of the story to my preschoolers so they can decide which they prefer.

Very traditional book and great for thematic units in Kindergarten and First Grade. Students were able to follow the story and respond to it.

This version of the gingerbread man has such beautiful pictures for very young children and enough words, but not too many for toddlers on up.

I use this version of The Gingerbread Man and many other versions of the story with my 1st graders. We compare and contrast the stories.
