Run, run as fast as you can, You can t catch me, I m the Gingerbread ManThe Gingerbread Man is chased all the way to the river by the Little Old Woman, the Little Old Man, Humpty Dumpty, the Grand Old Duke of York, Little Miss Muffet, and many other familiar characters And indeed, none can catch him But the Gingerbread Man cannot swim Can he run away from the wily old fox who offers to help him across the river This is a delightful retelling of a beloved children s classic fable Carol Jones illustrations are beautifully detailed and will give hours of pleasure to children and adults This book was a clever remake of the classic book It added different characters from other traditional children s books I liked the rhythm of the book and the pictures that kept you guessing at who they were going to see next There s even a recipe for gingerbread men in the back Another re telling of the old tale of the gingerbread man In this version a variety of other nursery rhyme characters from Humpty Dumpty to the Little Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe are pursuing the tasty cookie The fox still gets him in the end Nice touch is the pages have a hole in them so you can see the illustrations on the next page.Nice illustrations Lots too look at. The pictures in this book were very detailed and pleasing to the eye Students would love them I also loved how the book incorporated many different fables, such as Humpty Dumpty, Little Boy Blue, and the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe It was cool how there were circles cut out of every other page to show part of the previous page and next page Overall, it was a very good book. This book would be good for early elementary students because it has many of the nursery rhyme characters in it that all want to eat the gingerbread man Good for either Christmas or fairy tales. A classic retelling of the Gingerbread Man Run, run as fast as you can, You can t catch me, I m the gingerbread man There are cute cut out on each page I don t love the pictures but it is still a good one Really enjoyed the illustrations and loved that they incorporated other nursery rhyme characters into the story. I liked this book very much However, I couldn t really see this book as being the center of a lesson plan for early elementary students It was very neat how the book involved other classic fairytale characters but I think it could have been written in acreative way The illustrations did appeal to me and I think that students would love them as much as I did.
