Published in 1975 The gingerbread boy is a fun classic tale for everyone. I think it is a little sad how the gingerbread boy dies and I don't know how I feel about reading that to kids, I feel like that might be upsetting for them. But he is also a cookie.

“run, run, run, catch me if you can!” a repetitive line that could be from the original gingerbread man story too

The fox ending up getting the gingerbread man was sad for me. I was rooting for him. But—in a way it still had a happy ending. The fox was satisfied, and could now take a nice nap :)

This story is a version of the gingerbread man. An elder couple are sad about not having their own little boy or girl. So, the little old woman decides to make a ginger boy, to have their own little boy. The gingerbread boy gets loose, however, and runs away form everyone. As he does, the story repeats everyone he‘s previously ran from, so it has good repetition happening.

Super cute for the classroom! I think my students would enjoy the small catchy phrases and be able to participate as I read!

The Gingerbread Boy was written by Paul Galdone and published in 1975. The book uses repetition and small catchy songs that would be appealing to the kids! An old couple bakes a gingerbread boy and then he runs and runs away from everyone!

The Gingerbread Boy by Paul Galdone, 1975. I have never read the story of the gingerbread boy. I have heard it told to me and I knew of it. This was the first time I read through the the whole story and saw what happened to the gingerbread boy. I was shocked that the gingerbread boy trusted the fox to carry him across the river. I liked the repetition of the women, man, and animals all trying to eat him.

This book was so cute and so classic. It makes me happy to read this. I remember making a gingerbread boy in kindergarten after reading this book.

The Gingerbread Boy by Paul Galdone is a piece of classic literature. It was written in 1975. This is the classic story of the gingerbread boy. When I was younger I always thought of it as the gingerbread man. This book is very repetitious with the gingerbread boy saying how he can outrun everyone. I thought it was clever how the foxes tricked him, but It made me sad because the gingerbread boy was so cute!

The Gingerbread Boy by Paul Galdone (traditional lit, published 1975) was really good and a book I want in my library. It was a regular version of the story but I found the illustrations really interesting and the story itself is so good!

This book has simple illustrations. It would be interesting to read it along with other versions to see how they are different.

This story is a classic, although I didn‘t remember it ending that way. There are multiple versions of the Gingerbread Man, but most of them end up with him being caught in his house.

I thought this book was entertaining to read. I haven‘t ever read a version like this one before. The plot was simple and direct.

My favorite part of the book was the very beginning when the gingerbread boy jumped out of the oven and ran away! That was the first scene that showed it was a mythical story

this cumulative tale gives a repetitive structure that leads up to a fast climax. it gives a successful myth all kids enjoy learning and was always told in a humorous way!

Cute story that is great to tell during christmas time. It also lets kids have their minds explore about myths in different cultures arising.
