- Have You Seen the Gingerbread Man? - 

Last week, Sonntag Kindergartners took a journey through the school to hunt down the Gingerbread Man! They searched all across the school and even into the library to find the Gingerbread Man. With every stop they made they discovered a note that the Gingerbread Man had left behind. After a great morning of searching they were able to catch the Gingerbread Man in their very own classrooms! He must have been hiding! Check out some of the Kindergartners as they were about to search the library...

Want to read some good books about the quick-as-lightning Gingerbread Man? Check these out!

by Janet Squires
A freshly baked gingerbread cowboy escapes from the rancher's wife's kitchen and eludes his pursuers in this western United States version of the "Gingerbread Boy."

by Lisa Campbell Ernst
After their first gingerbread disaster, the lonely old couple decides to bake again and create a gingerbread girl who proves herself to be one smart cookie.

Gingerbread Baby
by Jan Brett

A young boy and his mother bake a gingerbread baby that escapes from their oven and leads a crowd on a chase similar to the one in the familiar tale about a not-so-clever gingerbread man.
