The Gingerbread Man: Loose on the Fire Truck by Laura Murray –ADVISABLE

Murray, Laura and Illustrated by Lowery, Mike  The Gingerbread Man: Loose on the Fire Truck 32 pgs. Putnam Juvenile, 2013. $12.69.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
The students take the Gingerbread Man on a field trip to the Fire house! But when the Dalmatian dog comes after him, the Gingerbread Man will have to think on his feet, and ends up heading out with the crew to fight a real fire!
I really like these books, and the younger grades do too! The Gingerbread Man is a big part of the first few days of school for the Kindergartners at my school –so this book would be a great addition –a good read just before a fire drill. The artwork is fantastic and the rhyming is well done –all without using goofy words just for the sake up keeping up the rhyme-Hooray!
