The Gingerbread Man Loose at The Zoo

by Laura Murray

Is there anything more fun than a class trip to the zoo? The Gingerbread Man and his classmates don’t think so, and they get to solve riddles on a WILD scavenger hunt. They meet giraffes, monkeys, and even a fox (especially scary for a Gingerbread Man!).
 
But a zoo full of critters is a tricky place for a tasty cookie—even a very fast one—and the Gingerbread Man ends up separated from his friends. He needs to solve all of the riddles to catch up with his class and help someone else who is lost.
 
I’ll be a detective. I know that I can!
I’ll solve all these clues. I’m the Gingerbread Man!
 
Animals galore and a trail of clues make the Gingerbread Man’s latest adventure his wildest one yet.

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.
