It is no secret that I have a love for Jan Brett. She is the author of some of my most favorite children's stories. Her characters and illustrations bring reading to life. The story I choose to giveaway is Gingerbread Baby.
Gingerbread Baby is about a boy named Matti who peeks into the oven too soon and out jumps the Gingerbread Baby! He leads Matti's mom, dad, and several other characters chasing him through the village with with lots of tricks along the way. In the meantime, Matti stays home and decides to build a gingerbread house. Will the Gingerbread Baby be captured by everyone who is chasing him or will he be reduced? I guess you'll have to read the book to find out!
Gingerbread Baby is perfect for this time of year and it is always a kid favorite. I've created a book report craftivity FREEBIE to go along with this book. It can actually be used with any gingerbread story.
After you've read the story and discussed it with your class, your students can create their gingerbread book report to show the story elements.
