(1999). Gingerbread Baby  . New York: Putnam Juvenile. Summary: In similar fashion to the popular “Gingerbread Man” book, Gingerbread Baby  by Jan Brett puts a new spin on an old tale.

Instead of being caught by a wily fox, this book has a different ending: the characterMatti thinks of a unique way to catch the Gingerbread Baby.  Awards/Reviews:  Children's Gallery Award, 2000-2001 ; Nominee; Grades K-2; U.S.A  Colorado Children's Book Award, 2001 ; Nominee; Colorado  ABC Children's Booksellers Choices Award, 2000 Winner Picture BooksU.S.A  Children's Gallery Award, 2001 Winner U.S.A Reviews: School Library Journal5/1/2001Video Librarian5/1/2001Horn Book Guide4/1/2000Booklist11/15/1999Kirkus Review11/1/1999Library Journal11/1/1999Publisher's Weekly9/20/1999 (Mackin, 2010) Curriculum Connection:  This would be a good tale for students to be able to retell and act out.
