The Gingerbread Cowboy puts a big ole Texas twist on the familiar gingerbread man story. Giddyup, giddyup as fast as you can. I admit that since I moved to the great state, I am a lover of all things Texas. But I don’t think that you have to be a Texas resident to fall in love with this fun book.
The gingerbread girl is one smart cookie! This book is a little long but I love how the gingerbread girl outsmarts and tames the fox.
Kids can count along as the tiny gingerbread men disappear and then are reunited in the rhyming counting book. I like that this book has peek-through pages.

A sequel to the Gingerbread Baby. The little gingerbread baby is lonely in this tale. He visits a bakery on a mission to find friends. Your kids will enjoy this gingerbread version with a fun chorus and some familiar elements. The gorgeous illustrations and descriptive text by Jan Brett are my favorite part of the book.
This is a silly story about the adventures that a Gingerbread man finds in an elementary school building. This time, the gingerbread man is doing the chasing and the comic-book-like format is really different too.
The gingerbread man joins his class on a field trip to the zoo. The gingerbread man loses the class and goes on a fun rhyming scavenger hunt. Your kids will enjoy playing along too. Will the smart little cookie find his friends?
If your kids enjoy hearing stories about the gingerbread man on the loose, they will love this too. This time, the smart cookie joins his class on a field trip to the fire station. This is also a great addition to a unit about fire safety or community helpers.
Maisy shows your kids step-by-step how to make gingerbread in this short and sweet story. I love how Maisy doesn’t make a traditionally shaped gingerbread man. Check it out.
