My son (2 years old) loved this book. Wonderful old-fashioned looking illustrations accompany the rhyming story. We used the recipe after and made our own cookies.

The title of this story is The Gingerbread Man. An old man and woman were going to make a gingerbread man. Then the old woman opened the oven and ran away like a snap. He meant a lot of people when he ran away he meant a butcher, black and white cow, and a muddy old sow, and a fox. If you want to know what happens next then read the book the gingerbread man and also I have more ideas. The gingerbread man book is a fun book. When the old man and woman made a gingerbread man with yummy food. A other way is the gingerbread man ran away like a snap. A other way is the gingerbread man got eaten and besides it needed to be eaten anyway. All my words so if you want to see who ate the gingerbread man then read the book the gingerbread man.

This version of The Gingerbread Man is not to be missed (both board book and regular picture book). The illustrations are charming and the rhythm of the text imparts a sense of the rhythm of language to even the youngest children. As a former school librarian, I can attest to the book's success and popularity with all. I read it to my 20-month-old granddaughter over the holidays and she was charmed.

This book beats all of the books made about Ginger Men. It has so many details about the Ginger Man, like how it tasted and if he had gumdrops or not, if he had a suit of icing. It demonstrates exactly how it smells and looks. When I was a child and I heard this story in a caset, I could already imagine all the characters, and the smells and the tastes.

I thought this book was okay bcause the book was funny. And it was sad. It was sad because the gingerbread man got eaten. It was funny because the characers had to run and run.
