Back of Book:
Is there anything more fun than a class trip to the zoo? The Gingerbread Man and his classmates don’t think so, and they get to solve riddles on a WILD scavenger hunt. They meet giraffes, monkeys, and even a fox (especially scary for a Gingerbread Man!).
But a zoo full of critters is a tricky place for a tasty cookie—even a very fast one—and the Gingerbread Man ends up separated from his friends. He needs to solve all of the riddles to catch up with his class and help someone else who is lost.
I’ll be a detective. I know that I can!
I’ll solve all these clues. I’m the Gingerbread Man!
Animals galore and a trail of clues make the Gingerbread Man’s latest adventure his wildest one yet.
My students have always been fans of the Gingerbread man stories. They love watching him get into all kinds of trouble. The Day of the zoo is another terrific read aloud. The rhyming and vocabulary are perfect for younger readers. The word bubbles make the story unique and keeps readers attention. The illustrations are fun, and allow readers to see every aspect of the story. Great story to teach children predications.
