The Little Gingerbread Man

Written by: Carol Moore

Slide2

Once upon a time there was an old woman who loved baking gingerbread. She would bake gingerbread cookies, cakes, houses ,and gingerbread people, all decorated with chocolate and peppermint, caramel candies, and colored frosting.

Slide3

She lived with her husband on a farm at the edge of town. The sweet spicy smell of gingerbread brought children skipping and running to see what would be offered that day.

Slide4

Unfortunately the children gobbled up treats so fast the old woman had a hard time keeping her supply of flour and spices to continue making the batches of gingerbread. Sometimes she suspected little hands of having reach through her kitchen window because gingerbread pieces and cookies would disappear. One time a whole gingerbread house vanished mysteriously. She told told her husband, “Those naughty children are at it again. They don’t understand all they have to do is knock on the door and I’ll give them my gingerbread treats.

Putting the rack on the kitchen windowsill she left it there to cool and went to finish her laundry. The gingerbread men lay quietly, their frosted eyes gazing at the sky with its puffy clouds. At that moment a voice came from nowhere.” Get up. Get up. Come with me.” Everyone looked to see who was speaking. It was a butterfly flying just outside the window. Butterflies are naturally beautiful, but her wings were an exceptionally pretty marbled blue. “come with me”, she urged again.

Slide6

The gingerbread men didn’t react except to keep staring. All but the smallest gingerbread man who jumped up from the tray and leaped off the kitchen windowsill onto the grass below faster than you could say “hurry.”

Slide7

“where are we going” he asked. “away.” and before the butterfly had finished speaking children appeared in the yard. Spying the little gingerbread man they started shrieking with delight and began chasing him. “Stop, stop we want to eat you”, the children shouted. But with his little legs churning the gingerbread man only ran faster. He yelled, “ I wont stop, run run as fast as you can. You cant catch me im the gingerbread man. The children did not catch him.

Slide8

One of the horses trotted over the fence and whinnied” oh you smell so good little gingerbread man. Come over here so I can smell you better.” the little gingerbread man signed and shook his head and he also said” RUN RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN YOU CANT CATCH ME IM THE GINGERBREAD MAN.” The horse did not catch the gingerbread man.

Slide9

The next time he rested the little gingerbread man took care to lie amongst the grass well off the road where no one would see him. “Everyone wants to eat me,” he complained to the butterfly. “Do you want to eat me too? Laughing she answered. “ I love the smell of gingerbread. Its better than my favorite flowers.But I sip nectar, not gingerbread. Besides your my friend and friends don’t eat friends.

From then on the butterfly and the gingerbread man remained friends
