Guess who gets to go along on a field trip to the firehouse? The Gingerbread Man! But when he falls out of his classmate's pocket, Spot the Dalmatian comes sniffing around. Luckily, this Gingerbread Man is one smart cookie, and he races into the fire truck, up the pole, and all through the station, staying one step ahead of the hungry dog the whole time.Then an emergency call comes in and the Gingerbread Man knows just what to do:


“I’ll ride to the rescue, as fast as I can.

I want to help, too! I’m the Gingerbread Man!”

With snappy rhymes and fresh illustrations, the Gingerbread Man makes a sweet return in his second school adventure. Includes a poster with fire safety tips and activities.

Laura Murray's books are beyond engaging to our young readers. They love to read about their beloved Gingerbread Man and how he solves problems. It's always great to revive characters at later parts of the year and teach children how to look for illustrator traits. This book would make a great addition to our classroom!

I have a class of 20 four year olds from diverse backgrounds. As a school, we are 100% free and reduced lunch. Many of the children do not have books in their homes and therefore their only exposure to literature is what I make available in the classroom.
