Kid’s Review: The Gingerbread Man Loose at the Zoo by Laura Murray

Get it here!

I woke to the sound of a rumbling ROAR! And hooting, and howling, and growling galore.

Summary: (from my library catalog) When the gingerbread man gets separated from his class during a field trip to the zoo, he uses his teacher’s animal scavenger hunt clues to find his way back to them.

Why I like this book: Another fantastic read-aloud from Laura Murray, layered with information on animal identification and fun! The illustrations are bright, comic-like (in composition too) and cheerful – bound to engage the whole class.

Resources/Activities: great read for a science unit on zoology; create riddles about animals not included in the book: make a classroom scavenger hunt.
