Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett tells the story of Matti, a little boy who opens the oven too early while making gingerbread men. A gingerbread baby pops out of the oven and leads Matti’s parents and a slew of other characters on a chase. Jan Brett’s twist on the traditional story of the gingerbread man provides kids with a sweeter ending. Her beautiful illustrations of the Swiss mountains are detailed and colorful and will keep kids entertained as they follow the little cookie’s escape. There are so many wonderful ways to use gingerbread to bring this story to life!
