It’s Story Time!

The Gingerbread Man is the story of a naughty little man. 

Audio The Gingerbread Man:

Part 1 

A long, long time ago, an old woman and an old man lived in a small house.

One day, the old woman made a gingerbread man. First, she made his head. Then, his eyes and his mouth. Finally, she made his arms and legs. She put the gingerbread man in the oven to bake.

After some minutesthe old woman opened the oven and… out jumped the Gingerbread Man! He ran out of the house.

Part 2

“Stop! Stop!” the old woman shouted. “Let me take a bite!”

“Stop! Stop!” the old man shouted. “Let me take a bite!”

But the Gingerbread Man ran on and on.

“Run, run

as fast as you can! 

You can’t catch me.

I’m the Gingerbread Man.”

Soon, the Gingerbread Man met a cow.

“Stop! Stop!” the cow shouted. “Let me take a bite!”

But the Gingerbread Man ran on and on.

“Run, run

as fast as you can! 

You can’t catch me.

I’m the Gingerbread Man.” 

Soon, the Gingerbread Man met a horse.

“Stop! Stop!” the horse shouted. “Let me take a bite!”

But the Gingerbread Man ran on and on.

“Run, run

as fast as you can! 

You can’t catch me.

I’m the Gingerbread Man.”

Part 3

The Gingerbread Man reached a river. Suddenly, a fox appeared.

“Hello, little Gingerbread Man. Can you swim across the river?” the fox asked.

“No, I can’t,” the Gingerbread Man said.

“I can help you,” the fox said. “Climb onto my tail and we can swim across the river together.”

So the Gingerbread Man climbed onto the fox’s tail.

“Oh, no,” the fox said. “The water is deep. Climb onto my back.”

So the Gingerbread Man climbed onto the fox’s back.

“Oh,no,” the fox said. “The water is very deep. Climb onto my head.”

So the Gingerbread Man climbed onto the fox’s head.

The fox reached the other side of the river. At that moment, he tossed his headthe Gingerbread Man flew up in the air!

“I will eat you now,” said the fox.

But the little man jumped away and escaped. He ran on and on and on.

Run, run

 as fast as you can! 

You can’t catch me,

I’m The Gingerbread Man.”
