About the Author

Jim Aylesworth tells his stories with generous doses of "out loud" sounds, rhythms, and rhymes. His 25-year teaching career taught him exactly what children love best in a story. He lives in Chicago, IL with his wife.

Barbara McClintock's distinguished books have four times been honored as NEW YORK TIMES Best Illustrated Children's Books.

When I read this book to my children, I was pleased to find an old version like I'd heard growing up. Not something revised and updated where the personality of the story is lost. Near the end of the book are a couple of rhymes which "make" the story. The way the story is printed takes the reader along as well as the words. For example, each time "and he ran" is repeated, a little drawing of the Gingerbread Man is there, so he appears to run down the page with the words. The children liked it, and learned to recognize the words, so it was a fun reading lesson. Along with these drawings there are wonderful full page pictures that tell the story themselves. The shock and determination shows on the characters' faces as they chase after the playful fellow. The animals are humanized, yet still charming. Their clothes, homes, and appliances are from the 1800's, and give the feel of a beautiful and simple era.
We like to make the very tasty gingerbread man recipe on the back of the book. Instead of little cookie cutter men, we use all the dough together to make a BIG gingerbread man. We have to be careful when he comes out of the oven...
