{Book Review} The Gingerbread Man Loose at the Zoo by Laura Murray



{Book Review} The Gingerbread Man Loose at the Zoo by Laura Murray

About the book: Is there anything more fun than a class trip to the zoo? The Gingerbread Man and his classmates don’t think so, and they get to solve riddles on a WILD scavenger hunt. They meet giraffes, monkeys, and even a fox (especially scary for a Gingerbread Man!). Animals galore and a trail of clues make the Gingerbread Man’s latest adventure his wildest one yet.

What I love about this book:

  • wonderful rhyming text that is fun to read
  • funny illustrations (many have speech bubbles)
  • lots of great verbs & adjectives
  • simple animal riddles
  • lots of opportunities for kids yoga activities based on the animals and other elements in the book (frog, owl, wolf, snake, giraffe, monkey, lion, elephant, bear, mole rat (child’s pose), zebra, rhino, seal, crocodile, fox, kangaroo, bus, gyan mudra looking glasses, cross crawl hike)
