He tries all the baked people and swans in the bakery, but none will speak to him, let alone be his friend. Baby is feeling lonelier than ever when he returns home.
But Mattie has a surprise for him, and if you pay close attention to the small illustrations on each page a Jan Brett signature you can figure out what it will be. Mar 08, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: My son picked this one out at the book fair he's 5. He can almost read it by himself, but we like to read it together. I think the main draw is the illustrations, which are really great.
Also, there is a separate arc if you read the side panels in the book as you go along, that provides the little boy's gingerbread recipe and shows him making the gingerbread friends. That is maybe the best part, and exciting for my son because he also likes to bake. Feb 02, Sylvia rated it it was amazing. I love Jan Brett's books and often used them in my classes.
This one I used during the celebration of Xmas at school. My schoolkids got a gingerbread baby on cardboard and could decorate it with beads and colored tape. When finished they could use it to hang it on the Christmas trea. I also read the book and the kids to use the color plates. Absolute a lovely book, also for adult, if you like Jan Brett's illustrations.

In a shared writing activity, guide your students in making a list of rhyming words. Record the words on sentence strip cards and display them in a pocket chart in the front of the room. Students can use the words as a reference, similar to a word bank, when they write their own poems.
Students should then each write their own descriptive sentence about a different character or object on the page. Encourage them to use creative adjectives in their writing. In small groups, students can take turns reading their sentences and guessing which characters or objects their classmates have described. How are they similar and how are they different? How is your classroom like a community? What does it mean to be a friend?
