The Gingerbread Man

Introduction

This picture tale will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills, as they listen to you read the text that appears on the screen. Reading this story with your child is a fun way of encouraging them to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling, and is great for stimulating their imagination. You can print out the story at the end and your child can colour in the pictures.

How to extend the magic

Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and create your own tale. It can be about anything you like. Think about who your main character will be and where your adventure will be set (a castle, a forest, at sea, in space, underground - wherever you want). Just begin your story with 'Once upon a time...' and have fun making up the rest!
