The Gingerbread Man (floor Book) My First Reading Book by Janet Brown

This is an enchanting retelling of a timeless fairy tale, with bright and imaginative drawings throughout. The fresh and lively storyline is designed to appeal to the young child, with appropriate vocabulary for those learning to read by themselves. It features interactive pages that encourage children to read, write and observe. It is an illustrated first reading book in a large, fun format. 'Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!' The Gingerbread Man outruns a little old lady, a cow, a horse and a farmer, but what happens when a sly fox offers to carry him across a wide river...? The classic children's story is retold in this delightful book, illustrated throughout with engaging drawings. The simple vocabulary and familiar language mean that children can follow as you read or try for themselves. Interactive questions and an odd-one-out game at the back of the book provide a valuable aid to learning.
