The Gingerbread Man

Fairy Tale with picture glossary and an activity

By Pat-a-Cake and Ronne Randall
Illustrated by Susan Batori

  • Hardback
  • £4.99

A beautiful read-aloud story to share, with a visual glossary and an activity to take young children deeper into the story.

"Run, run, run as fast as you can - you can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!" Follow the gingerbread man with his famous refrain as he runs away from Molly and her Mum who have baked and decorated him for their tea.

It's never too early to introduce children to the magic and wonder of classic tales. Familiar characters are brought to life at each turn of the page with spellbinding artwork and lyrical writing. A visual glossary at the beginning introduces new vocabulary and promotes understanding. A lively activity at the end invites discussion and will make even the very youngest children want to return to these story books again and again. There's even a gingerbread recipe to make your very own gingerbread man!

Fairy tales and classic stories are a vital introduction to the basics of storytelling like setting, characters and plot. They boost a child's imagination and also teach valuable life lessons about good overcoming evil, the difference between right and wrong and the importance of rising to a challenge.

Also available: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, The Ugly Duckling, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Jack and the Beanstalk
