The Gingerbread Bear

Thursday is library day at Jude’s Preschool.  He loves this day!  He gets to return his book that he chose the week before and take a trip to the library and pick out a new book for the week.  Something so simple but something so powerful for our little guy!

Last week he picked out a Holiday Book called The Gingerbread Bear.  This was probably his favorite book he has checked out so far this year.  He loved it and even started memorizing the words as we read it to him.  So cute!  
This book is a different spin on the well-known Gingerbread Man story. 

The Gingerbread Bear 
By Robert Dennis

This book is great for pre-readers.  Grades K-2 recommended.  The pictures in this book are
great.  Even Teagan thought they were great pictures to look at.  This book is about a Gingerbread Bear who comes alive.  This Gingerbread Bear runs all over the forest.  He runs into campers and lots of wildlife friends but when the Clever Park Ranger tricks him he can’t escape!  The rhyme in the book quickly became the section of the book that Jude started singing as he was running through the house!

Run, run, try if you dare.
You can't catch me.
I'm the Gingerbread Bear!

I love Library Day too!  I get excited to see what book we will be reading for the week at home!

What books have your children checked out this year?

  1. Thanks for this! We are doing a gingerbread playdate this week and I'm going to see if I can snag a copy of this to read to the kids!
