This Gingerbread Man was loose in the school and on the fire truck, and now he’s loose at holiday time! 

Everyone in class is busy practicing songs and making goodies for their trip to town to thank community helpers, and the Gingerbread Man has made a gift for someone extra sweet. But before he can deliver his gift, whipping wind and swirling snow come to town, too. Slushy sidewalks are no place for a cookie, but this Gingerbread Man won’t let a little bad weather stop him!

“I’ll search on my own, as fast as I can!
I’ll dash through this snow. I’m the Gingerbread Man!”


With all the flavors of the season and generous dashes of kindness and gratitude, the Gingerbread Man’s newest adventure makes for a perfect read-aloud throughout the holidays.

Laura Murray's books are beyond engaging to our young readers. They love to read about their beloved Gingerbread Man and how he solves problems. It's always great to revive characters at later parts of the year and teach children how to look for illustrator traits. This book would make a great addition to our classroom!

I have a class of 20 four year olds from diverse backgrounds. As a school, we are 100% free and reduced lunch. Many of the children do not have books in their homes and therefore their only exposure to literature is what I make available in the classroom.
