Product Description


"This title will leave kids giggling as they follow the sometimes dire consequences of the G-man's efforts to be reunited with his class. . . . This reinvention of a venerable figure is funny to the max."  Booklist, starred review

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book in used condition Aug. 16 2016
By VLK76 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the book I was looking for to use with my kindergarten students for the beginning of this year. I intentionally ordered a good, used condition book in order to save money and I can't complain. The book is definitely used but still has plenty of life left in it and I intend to utilize it with more of my future kindergarten classes. There are some very good "getting to know your school" and "citizenship" lessons that can be found to utilize this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is hysterical! July 25 2011
By Deborah Sandford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A class of students bakes a gingerbread man; the teacher calls, "Recess!" and the students race out the door, leaving the gingerbread man behind.

"I'll run and run, as fast as I can. I can catch them! I'm their gingerbread man!"

His misadventures are too funny as he scrambles to find his class.

The rhyming format incorporates the narration, as well as the dialogue of the gingerbread man and the other characters.

I hope this team (Laura Murray, author and Mike Lowery, artist) continue to entertain readers--we need more feel-good, laugh-until-you-cry books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gingerbread Man on the Loose July 14 2011
By Alison Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a fun and original take on an old favorite. Murray's Gingerbread Man is left behind in the classroom and creates all manner of mischief before the children return from recess. The illustrations are simple and childlike, and the cookie's adventures fit perfectly into school and library activities. A must for teachers and caregivers!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a winner! Aug. 4 2011
By Margaret Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Gingerbread Man Loose in School" is the complete package! It's fun, engaging, full of action, and it has extras - a removable map in the back of the book, and a website with even more ideas. As a teacher, I appreciate its strong use of visual supports and rhyming to increase comprehension for young readers. Laura Murray has immediately become one of my favorite authors, and I can't wait for her next book!
