    The classic tale of the runaway Gingerbread Man who escapes his hungry creators as well as a string of others met upon the road before his fateful encounter with a fox is here retold by the marvelously talented Jim Aylesworth and Barbara McClintock whose other projects include Goldilocks and the Three Bears The Tale of Tricky Fox and most recently The Mitten With a narrative just made for reading aloud and delightful watercolor ink and gouache illustrations this is without a doubt my favorite retelling of this popular storySimilar in content and style to a number of European tales also featuring runaway edibles the Slavic Kolobok retold as The Little Round Bun in Irina Zheleznova's Ukrainian Folk Tales ; the Norwegian Pannekaken found in Asbjørnsen and Moe's Norwegian Folktales ; or the Scots tale The Wee Bannock collected by Joseph Jacobs in More English Fairy Tales The Gingerbread Man is the American contribution to this tale type and although it appeared as late as 1875 in a children's periodical has become the definitive version for many readers in this country What child doesn't thrill to the insouciant Gingerbread Man's taunting rhyme Run Run Fast as you can You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man? Aylesworth's narrative has all the humor and fun of the original while McClintock's art ably conveys the building excitement of the story culminating in that foxy ending Highly recommended to anyone who loves this tale in particular or sing songy folktales in general

    Ok So there's a reason that I purchased this book besides the fact that I loved the story as a kid I have a child in my class Elijah and he is one of those wild and crazy kids with lots of energy that always makes you crack up So he runs away from the kids who aren't as fast as he is yelling Run run as fast as you can You can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man This is every day on the playground and we would all laugh and it would be repeated throughout center time So a couple of weeks ago I was trying to stop myself from becoming frustrated while perusing the book tables at Garden Ridge and came across a really nice version of the book and decided to purchase it The kids laugh and laugh every time we read it and most of them have it memorized by nowOk so we all know the story no one can catch him after he escapes from the oven until he makes the mistake of trusting the fox at the end I mean seriously who trusts a fox?? He deserved the outcome But still a great story Definitely recommended to kids as well as the kid at heart

    This has never been one of my favorite stories Conseuently I didn't have a copy of the story on my shelves and I haven't read this to any of the kids Not good So today I found this book illustrated by McClintock It's a faithful retelling with clear clean and interesting art but I still don't care for the tale It's so cannibalistic But the gingerbread boy is asking for trouble with his constant tauntsAccording to McClintock the gingerbread man was baked in an old fashioned stove The old couple who cooked him are obviously skilled If I tried cooking a giant cookie in our old stove I'm sure there would be at least a few burnt spots on the edges

    Who doesn't love a classic like the tale of the mischievous gingerbread and the havoc he causes among the people around him? This beloved picture book though it could as go under the classification of folklore is appropriate for children as young as three and as old as eight though I think someone of any age could still enjoy the story Many renditions have been made of the tale but this one written by Jim Aylesworth happens to be a favorite of mine The rhyming schemes and expressive language implemented alongside the colorful illustrations bring the story to life I enjoy that this book has the potential to be implemented in many lesson plans and actives in the classroom and has the potential to allow readers to explore the history and different stories related to it If you're looking for a fun read explore this one and see how an adventure unravels as a lady simply trying to make a treat for her family has the misfortune of creating a cookie with life who escapes and causes trouble wherever he goes

    I loved this tale as a child and this is an excellent version but I do find the ending rather upsetting so than I did as a child I liked “gingerbread men” cookies back then and I wasn’t a vegan either so maybe that has something to do with it or perhaps it’s my overly developed “adulthood” intruding I still enjoyed this tale and it’s a perfect read aloud bookI like the nice touch of having a gingerbread cookies recipe in the back of the bookBarbara McClintock's illustrations are always wonderful and Jim Aylesworth has written an interesting version of the story

    This version of this classic traditional story is fun to read aloud as it rhymes beautifully and lends to choral reading the repeat phrase as you go It's reading level is fairly easy for lower elementary but it would be a fun version to compare to others for the 2nd grade MN ELA standard of comparing different versions of the same story In the version I remember as a child he gets away but in this version he trusts a fox and gets eaten Other than that it is the typical traditional version of running around town evading people and taunting them as he goes It's a fun book decent pictures

    This classic tale of the gingerbread man is illustrated using watercolor sepia ink and gouache The repetitive refrain of the fleeing gingerbread man is an excellent way to engage children in storytelling Whether used as a bedtime story a classroom read aloud or as reader's theater this story is a favorite
