Gingerbread Men Stories from Around the World
A lot of teachers read the Gingerbread Man to their class this time of year. I love the Gingerbread Man as much as the next mama or teacher, but what I love even more is finding other versions of a traditional story. I had a few such stories in my personal collection, but decided I wanted to compile a list of all of the Gingerbread Men stories from around the world. So, I set to doing so and was amazed with what I found. Here is a list of the different versions I found. My favorites are the The Runaway Rice Cake and The Runaway Wok both by Ying Chang Compestine.
