A delightful, old-fashioned story. The illustrations are great! It's a great kids story. My grandaughter loves anything to do with a gingerbread man and she loved it.

Story words are just a little wrong for those of us who remember the original - eg This edition talks about the gingerbread man running away from a little old couple instead of "a little old woman and a little old man" The refrain in this book is "You can run away from a little old couple....." instead of "I've run away from..a little old woman and a little old man..."
Print is small and for some reason I can't enlarge on it on the kindle.
Just not the same as reading the book. .

My 3-year-old loves how animals are added to the chase and the repetition of the Gingerbread Man's catchphrase. She asks me to recite it even when we're not reading the book. I think the beginning and the ending went a little over her head, but she loves everything in between!

The book was fine. It has colorful and large illustrations--perfect for our 4-year-old granddaughter. She had asked for the book previously, so I bought it for her for Christmas.

My grandson loves for me to read this book to him because it is so repetitive. He finishes every line with me. So perfect for a 3 year old!!!

This is one of many versions of the Gingerbread boy story. The illustrations are engaging and the repetitive text makes it easy for children to join in.
Try reading this version along with one or more (the more the merrier) versions. Children can compare details of the story and may be inspired to write their own version!
