Read It Yourself: The Gingerbread Man

The Gingerbread Man doesn’t want to be eaten, so he jumps out of the oven and races away! No one can catch him, he boasts – except the cunning fox, who knows just how to catch a bragger out! A favourite fairy tale is retold for starter readers in this charming Read It Yourself book, which combines simple everyday words with clear and beautiful pictures to support children and capture their attention. Perfect for building confidence, the book includes puzzle questions for checking comprehension, and belongs to Level 2 of the scheme, for those who can read simple sentences with adult help.
